Senior Design Manager at Snowflake
Experienced in establishing and scaling product design teams working on complex high-growth domains. Currently, a senior manager leading European part of Snowflake's Design: a world-class, multinational group of designers focused on Applied Machine Learning, Marketplace, Connectors, Data Engineering and Internal Business Tools. Before Snowflake, spent over six years at Google where he established and led a multi-role team (design, research, writing) responsible for Compute Engine and other core cloud products (Serverless Computing, BigQuery/Data Integration).
Two years ago, Snowflake decided to locate its major European R&D center in Warsaw. Coming from two different backgrounds (a design studio & a big tech giant): we share our retrospective on two years working at Snowflake. We'll talk about how an extremely collaborative culture, "slow haste," and a strong focus on execution, contribute to an environment where design is the key differentiator.
