Senior UX Designer at CoolPlanet

A bit about you

As a UX Designer, my goal is to design an intuitive and user-friendly experience for our software platform, CoolPlanetOS. It’s really interesting and rewarding!

Life before CoolPlanet

I actually started my career in banking. However, I decided to pivot towards UX design because I wanted to combine my passion for technology and problem-solving. I had the opportunity to work on some amazing projects, including the COVID tracker app, before joining Cool Planet.
