Senior Interaction Designer @ Google
15 years of experience in user interfaces creation have brought Olena to the precious ability to create products for humans by concentrating on users’ needs rather than on particular pieces of interface, styles, or short term business goals. Her previous experience as a developer became a good basis for extended design experience in various companies, from small creative agencies to IT giants, such as Ericpol (largest outsourcing company in Poland, working for Ericsson), Gadu-Gadu (polish alternative to Skype and ICQ) and Google. Living and working in many countries has helped her to understand cultural differences, therefore the designs she creates are based on cognitive science, sociology, and user needs. Olena is willing to share her experience and ideas about anything UX-related, as well as share knowledge about Google Design Sprint methodology and help with tips on how to use this method in your own company.
