🤟 Projects

Yotaphone2 Academy

An internal project of Yota devices. Allowed to train salespeople to sell Yotaphone 2 smartphones and form motivational programmes. Developed as a website with a mobile part.

Pay-Z

A complex and comprehensive project. A contactless payment system for installation in any shop. The customer uses an app on his smartphone to buy goods in real shops and pay at special terminals avoiding queues at checkout counters. The most interesting part of the project is the offline scenarios. I visited shops and followed people around to understand how they buy and choose goods. I read a book on the psychology of shopping to understand the nuances - it helped us to set up the terminal correctly and identify the points of contact with the user.

Televzr PRO

A project on which I learned how to develop and grow a product. It is a media library with a subscription-based monetisation model. It was promoted in the US, Indian and English-speaking markets. The main selling feature is the ability to download videos and audio via direct link. Our team raised the product from zero to profits of over $10,000 per month. As a designer, I designed the product interface for desktop and mobile apps, website, landing pages and identity. Conducted many experiments to find product growth points and eliminate bottle necks.

Chatfuel onboarding

This was a competition project for Chatfuel, a chatbot service for Messenger. It is basically just an onboarding concept in the form of a dialogue with a chatbot that talks about itself. Was made by me and my manager within a week. Built a working prototype on Readymag. Won 3rd place.

PitchMe

This is my current product - a skills-based recruitment service. The company is based in the UK and works for the European market.
