Michal — can you introduce yourself to our users? 🧑🏼💻 Who's the one behind the mesmerizing design of Spendee? 🎨
Hi guys! I’m Michal and in Spendee, I’m the one who’s always striving to find the best solution to your problem and who’s making sure you love the app. Also, the one who’s constantly explaining why we can’t implement all the wish-list features right away and who’s finding these highest-highest priority topics among other highest priority topics. 😉
In my free time, I’m a big startup/tech enthusiast and I'm writing a UX/Product Management blog. Beside this I love to try new experiences, to taste new dishes and travel. Oh, and I love surfing! 🏄🏼♂️ Unfortunately, we don’t have the sea in Prague, so I can surf only when traveling ✈️
What's your #myspendeestory? 🧑🏼💻
Several years ago when Spendee was just a side project of a software dev house, I got a chance to help with the design and UX of the app. 💡 I fell in love with the project, the team and the vision of how Spendee could change personal finances forever. 💸
When the side-project became a company and I was offered to gain some extra responsibility and experience as a head of product, it was no brainer for me. ✌🏼
You mentioned that you’re a big fan of surfing, travelling and trying new experiences. How does it go together with your role in Spendee? 🤔
Surprisingly well I’d say. 😊 Thanks to the remote nature of our team (approx half of our team sits in the Prague office and the rest is distributed in a different Czech/German cities), it’s not a problem to move for a few weeks to Portugal or France and enjoy the weekend surf 🏄♂️ while working remotely.
On top of that, it’s always super refreshing and inspiring to escape for a moment and see our daily hustle from a different perspective. 👀
If you were a superhero, what would be your superpower⚡️
I’m always fighting with time. ⏰ 💥 Not having enough of it or having too much of it when I’m not able to properly use it. My superpower would be a time-manipulation. Ability to slow down, speed up or rewind the time.
Do you have your favourite Custom Slack Icon? 🧑🏼💻
Just like many other team members, I’ve got my own custom emojis :michal_impressed: and :michal_satisfied: which I like to use when we have significant progress. 🥳
Thanks for the interview Michal! Is there anything you’d like to share with the Spendee family? 💸
Stay tuned. The big things are coming veeery soon. I can’t tell you much, but the whole team has been working on this project for the past almost a year and we think it’s gonna be an amazing release. 🤩
