Chad Mueller

Product Designer at TribeHR

What do you do?

I am a web entrepreneur and the Product Designer for TribeHR.

What mobile device do you use?

I am an apple fanboy, so the latest iPhone is always in my pocket.

Best way to stay on top of email?

Stay on top of it… every morning, I make sure I take care of inbox zero and I am pretty quick to reply during the day.

Top five applications/programs?

Photoshop, Coda, Balsamiq (all 3 tools of the trade), Pocket (if I find something I add it to pocket which lets me read/watch on my iPad when I have downtime), Rdio (best source for music).

What is your best time-saving trick?

Dual monitors – saves so much time, you eventually take it for granted.

Favourite productivity tool?

Clear – the easy to use todo list on my phone is a lifesaver….

One non-tech thing you can't live without?

My watches.

Structure of your typical day? How do you divide your time?

Wake up around 5 – hit the gym, come home in-time to wake up my wife and daughter. Get ready for the office, take care of emails, catch myself up with news, sports and anything I might have missed from the day before. Spend the rest of the day working with the team on various features.. spend sometime in Balsamiq and Photoshop or dive into some CSS/HTML. Pack it in around 5 and spend the rest of my night with my daughter/wife and sometimes my home office and work on any personal side projects.
