Founding Product Designer at TravelPerk

Barcelona, Jan 2015 - March 2015

TravelPerk was a short adventure in the world of start-ups. I was invited by the co-founder Avi Meir to join them since the early days when we used to meet in a coffee shop and move office every month.

They want to be the tool where you book and manage all your business trips in one place and I'm proud to be their first Product Designer.
