Currently I'm a Design Director at Vinted. I manage a team of designers who are responsible for the growth of the marketplace and creating the tools for effortless product discovery. A big part of my job is an effective collaboration with leaders from engineering, product, and data to define product vision and strategy. I find myself doing the most rewarding work when I can enable teams or individuals get creative, move forward through uncertainty and develop elegant experiences.
Previously I led design at Trafi, a mobility platform for the cities - a complete solution combining all urban mobility modes into one. And before that, I spent years at TransferGo, helping migrants transfer more of their hard earned money home. I joined at it's infancy and saw first-hand what it takes to build a business and grow a great team.
I built my career on the shoulders of other people who now I can call mentors and friends. Therefore I'm happy to give back through teaching design and mentoring newcomers about design in tech. This led me to exciting opportunities (like teaching design in Kuwait) and new relationships which I will be forever grateful about.
I live in Vilnius, Lithuania with my wife and a flat-coat retriever. I'm an avid Manchester United fan, have a slight obsession with horology and spend too much time thinking about the wicked problems.
