Obed Raimundo

Hey now! My name’s Obed but most call me “Obi” and have been doing this since ’96 with small local businesses to the world of higher education for Seton Hall University and now working with CVP as a technologist furthering my career in Human Centered Design with my ever growing background in UI/UX/CX.

The creative route I’ve chosen has taken me to place and worked on projects I never would’ve dreamed of and I’m not stopping any time soon!

My Experience

After almost 10 years (and a pandemic) at Seton Hall University, it felt like it was time to move onto a new role and further my career in the world of UI/UX/CX and came across CVP (Customer Value Partners, Inc) where being a technologist allows me to take part in life changing projects and bring my years of experience to the ease of use for users while making it pleasing to the eye.
