I was invited as UX consultant to lead the design efforts for MyStock. I joined a diverse startup team to oversee the process of product discovery. I designed and tested prototypes. As part of my strategic role, I also helped to recruit another designer.
In the summer of 2018, I was invited to be a guest speaker at a conference for startups in Almaty where I talked about how Lean UX approach helps me in my work as a UX designer. We discussed many aspects of Lean Startup and the importance of validating an idea with real users through early and lightweight tests.
After the conference, MyStock co-founder approached me and invited me to run a one-day training session about Design Thinking with his team. A few months later MyStock proposed me to help them with designing a new version of the native app. I had to work remotely because I was based in the UK while the team was distributed across three countries USA, Kazakhstan and Ireland.
