He is strongly empathetic to users needs and works both with data/analytics and heuristics as well as with his great intuition and creativity. He can deliver full-stack solutions starting with the definition of needs and initial idea generation through design, mockups and prototypes to final coding/programming and finished product.
In the last 10 years, I worked with Jan on quite a few different projects and I always appreciated his deep insights and infinite energy. I can truly recommend him as both professional contractor and reliable employee.
Jan is a unique character. He has lots of ideas, but what differentiates him from other product managers are 2 aspects:
1. He is also a designer. Hence he doesn’t deliver just a high-level idea, but always brings the visual and can iterate on it very quickly
2. He is extremely impact driven. We went through hundreds of A/B tests together and I must humbly admit that Jan was much better than I was at predicting the impact.
Jan is a super valuable member of the team, as he always lives and breathes the projects he undertakes. Although his proficiency lies in product management and design, he can always tackle the task from broader perspective and other stakeholders' eyes.Thanks to that, he is able to combine customer centric approach with business value and deliver measurable results.
I was always fascinated by his influx of new ideas driven by continuous status quo challenging.
