I hope you got a ticket to our sold out conference in San Francisco on June 4th, because the line-up promises to be absolutely amazing. As if Marty Cagan, Kathy Sierra, Ryan Singer, Linda Rising, Tom Chi and Jon Kolko weren’t amazing enough, we’ve rounded out the line-up with three more rockstars of the product and design world:
Josh is a vocal advocate for Design Leadership, writing and speaking about the challenges of building Design-led companies and products. As an active advisor to several startups, a mentor at the Designer Fund, and part of the Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers Design Council, Josh continues to influence the centrality of Design in early and late-stage companies. In addition to being co-creator of 52 Weeks Of UX, Josh most recently served as Principal Designer at Twitter where he led the design of key initiatives across the Twitter product. His unique perspective and experience are why, in 2012, Fast Company named him one of “fifty designers shaping the future of design.” Prior to joining Twitter, Josh was Director of User Experience at Socialcast, an Enterprise social communication platform, which was acquired by VMware in 2011.
As the leader of user experience at Netflix and now Spotify, Rochelle King on Twitter has developed a keen sense of how to enrich (and prove) design concepts with quantitative user data. Rochelle King is Global VP of Design and User Experience at Spotify where she manages the teams that are responsible for user research and designing the product experience at Spotify. Prior to Spotify, Rochelle was VP of User Experience and Product Services at Netflix. Rochelle has over 14 years of experience working on consumer-facing products.
Mina is currently an EIR at Redpoint Ventures and an advisor at Cowboy Ventures, working with portfolio companies on product questions big and small. She’s also an advisor to several startups, and mentors companies at 500 Startups. Before that, Mina was running Product at Uber, having started back in the days when the UI was still a big green button. Other stints include ModCloth, Google, and Goldman Sachs.
See you on June 4th! If you haven’t got a ticket, I’m afraid you’re too late – but there’s always Mind the Product London in September!
