Marek Sivák Product Designer

Hello—I make friendly software products. I am curious about people and I use technology to delight them.

I work at Lalamove, which is a Hong Kong-based unicorn company expanding its logistics platform globally. I also help amazing teams to start their businesses. With Oqqur we launched their first virtual 360 tours. With Foundlost we organised challenging expeditions. Now I am helping athletes to tell stories about their workouts.

Where I got involved recently 2020-2021

Foundlost offers challenging expeditions to remote places of the planet. We figured out how to talk about expeditions, made booking system, design system for scaling the website and more
Oqqur builds live streaming platform for virtual tours in 360 reality. What team does gives a previe of post-covid world where travelling can happen from your home. Team needed critical product enhancements. I help them to make them and launch their first tours
Lalamove makes change by empowering people to easily transfer their goods across the cities. I worked on series of projects that enhanced experience of users when they make payments on the logistics platform
Levice: Kedysi a Dnes
A personal project that compares old photos of my home town with Google StreetView. I made design, wrote code and spent hundreds of hours in Photoshop to achieve pixel-perfect matching photos

Product Leader (Zappos, Amazon)
Marek is very intelligent and capable. He has a strong design aesthetic that stems from solving people-problems. He has a calm leadership style and is an excellent listener. His work ethic is very strong, with a solid disposition to roll-up sleeves and get stuff done. I have no reservations recommending him and would gladly have him on my team any time.

I have worked with dozens of designers at many companies and Marek stands out as an exceptional designer and leader. Marek is an outstanding leader, a thoughtful listener and exceptionally hard worker. Marek is obsessed with learning, he wants to live and breath the lives of his customers and stakeholders and constantly learn the cutting-edge best design practices. His background and experience mean that he is acutely aware of the importance of design in improving customer experience and driving revenues. I would not hesitate to work with Marek (and indeed still do!) and highly recommend him to those who have the opportunity to work with him.

I was writing software in a nuclear power plant before I knew anything about design. When I knew more, I moved to Hong Kong and started doing photography.

One day I will get fluent in speaking Cantonese and summit Kilimanjaro.
