Over the last decade I've been fortunate to be involved with some incredible teams

Vinted
Design Director
2019-Present

Overview
Vinted allows millions of people to sell and buy second-hand fashion in a personal and transparent way. As the Design Director I am responsible for product vision, strategy and bringing human-centered approach into our ways of working.

Over the last year design organisation tripled in size and my responsibility is to create a safe space for designers to thrive which includes setting up the processes, foster healthy team rituals and coaching for career growth.

What keeps me up at night:

  • How do I create the right conditions for the people to thrive and do the best work of their lives?
  • How might we build trust between strangers and match them in a relevant and personal way?

At Frontiers we are determined to provide real-world industry training through courses on product development, engineering leadership, design and research among others. I take people on a journey of design doing and product development where we practice research and insight gathering, problem framing, customer journey analysis and solution validation.

What keeps me up at night:

  • How do I 'unlearn' what I know? How can I structure the course with beginners mind?
  • What are the nuances of open, creative and collaborative environment? How might we enable groups feel more confident over time?

Overview
I joined TransferGo as the first designer and before we even had a product being used by anyone other than friends. Together we brought the product to market, grew our customer base and revenue exponentially, and built the best team I’ve ever worked with. Fintech became a thing. Eventually I led a small design team responsible for brand and product.

Company raised considerable amount of funds to expand into 49 markets. Due to the entrance of challenger brands over the course of 7 years remittance fees worldwide dropped 10x. I am incredibly proud having a miniscular part in it.

What kept me up at night:

  • How might we make financial tools feel less intimidating?
  • What does it take to build a cross-platform product?
