Hey, I'm MJ.

I'm a product designer with a specific interest in making collaborative impact. I’m currently leading design teams at Kiwi.com where we build the future of travel. I love to write & run.

Kiwi.com – Product Design Manager

2020 – present

Currently I’m focused on the main consumer website & mobile APP which processes hundred of millions searches and thousands purchases a day. I engage with product & engineering leaders on, planning, strategy, alignment, people growth and other responsibilities. I communicate the design’s impact across the organization and externally.

Kiwi.com – Product Designer

2017 – 2020

I contributed to building the first help & support centre and new revenue streams through ancillary services (seat selection, insurance, hotels). Over time these features scaled to independent product teams. My focus was to drive the design process from initial problem definition to final engineering support. My closest peers were UX Writers, UX Researchers, Product Managers, Data Analysts, Design System designers.

Edookit – Product Designer

2015 – 2017

I helped to create tools for the future of education. I started as the first designer establishing product patterns. Together with the founders and first engineers we have built an all-in-one cloud based school administration ecosystem. Later, I continued to work on mobile apps and innovative growth experiments like a social network for schools.

Freelance designer & filmmaker

2013 – 2015

As a freelancer I tackled various creative projects. From designing websites for political campaigns to creating promotions for musicians. My voluntary project on child abuse has been awarded by United Nations and officially acknowledged by the President of Slovakia. During these times I found my passion for journalism, filmmaking & writing.
