I'm Ekaterina(or Kate), an experienced Sr. Product Designer with a strong background in UX/UI design, interaction design, and visual merchandising. With a passion for creating intuitive and engaging user experiences, I strive to deliver designs that not only meet user needs but also drive business results.

In my current role as a Sr. Product Designer at BILL, I have had the opportunity to lead the mobile design process of the BILL and Unified Platform native apps. Through my leadership, I successfully consolidated three separate apps into one cohesive user experience, streamlining processes and enhancing user satisfaction. Additionally, I spearheaded the redesign of the React native app, transitioning it into fully native iOS and Android apps, resulting in improved performance and usability.

Prior to BILL, I served as a Sr. UX Designer at Gap Inc., where I had the privilege of working on both the browse and loyalty teams for responsive web and native apps.

Before Gap Inc., I honed my skills as an Interaction Designer at Intuit, where I crafted complex user interfaces and interactions for web, mobile, and cross-platform experiences within the billing and commerce domain. By leveraging my expertise in prototyping, wireframing, and user research, I created designs that not only met usability goals but also aligned with business objectives.

Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of collaborating with renowned companies like hear.com, Inpixon, and UST-Global, where I gained valuable experience in cross-functional teamwork, user research, and iterative design.

In addition to my professional experience, I hold a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Business E-commerce from Vyatka State University. To stay up-to-date with the latest industry trends, I've pursued continuous professional development, including a certificate in Design Thinking & Rapid Experimentation for Sustainable Innovation from Stanford Continuing Studies and UI/UX Design training from CareerFoundry.

I'm excited to showcase my portfolio and demonstrate my ability to create meaningful and impactful user experiences. I thrive in collaborative environments and enjoy tackling complex design challenges.

Things outside of work

There's something magical about hiking during the golden hours of dawn or dusk. As the sun casts a warm glow, I embark on breathtaking trails, surrounded by nature's beauty. It's during these serene moments that I find solace, inspiration, and a profound connection with the world around me.

Travel the world

Exploring the world and immersing myself in diverse cultures fuels my sense of adventure and broadens my perspective. From wandering through bustling city streets to discovering hidden gems in remote corners of the globe, each journey is a chance to create unforgettable memories.

My furry companions are an integral part of my life. Whether they're curled up by my side as I work or playfully chasing their favorite toys, their unconditional love brings me immense joy. These mischievous little creatures have a way of brightening even the gloomiest of days.
