About our power user, Jason Rodriguez

Litmus ensures that your emails avoid all the major spam filters, scans for subject line improvements all while catching broken links, testing load time and tests your email in over 70 apps and devices with just one click. By tracking subscriber insights, there are no more guessing games when it comes to the best time to woo your subscribers. Working with Litmus means you’ll never send an ineffective email again.

What are the workflows at Litmus where you see teams using CloudApp? ‍

For the most part, people just use it to quickly share screenshots of damned near anything. Customer success uses it to share snippets of customer conversations and feedback, and design and engineering post looks at work in progress as well as bugs using CloudApp.

One of my favorite uses of ClouAapp is the screen recording—especially the GIF recording. I recently used CloudApp to create beautiful animated GIFs that I included in a blog post showing off one of our products.

How did you get into this industry? ‍

A few years ago, I was working at a small agency that did digital work for one of the Big Three car manufacturers. Part of that work was building HTML email campaigns. It was a tough slog, mainly because there wasn’t a lot of reliable information on the web about email design. I finally decided to write and self-publish a book on the subject, which did surprisingly well and brought me to the attention of Litmus, a software company that builds the best tools for creating, testing, and tracking email marketing campaigns. One of the founders actually emailed me the same day my wife gave birth to our second daughter seeing if I were interested in joining Litmus. It was a good day. Fast forward three and a half years, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with an amazing team to help improve the email community. While we all wear a lot of hats, I’m currently a product manager overseeing our community platform, which connects email professionals and allows them to discuss all things email.

What does the future of product look like?

Like most people, I think data will continue to be a large factor in determining what is built and how, but I hope that more human interactions take a bigger role in shaping products, too. No data can replace conversations with actual users of a product, nor should it. I’m also looking forward to some of those conversations leading to quirkier products. A lot of product design is interchangeable from company-to-company, so I like seeing companies take weirder approaches to building things. It’s refreshing when a real voice and point-of-view comes through in a product, so I hope more people embrace their own quirks anbuild them into the tone of their products.

At CloudApp, we are continually striving to find the best ways to provide a great customer feedback led product and engage with our community of millions of users. We would be nothing without our CloudApp champions and love to hear from power users who love our product and benefit from it! If you would like to be featured as a power user, fill out the form below.
