My next available slot is
Monday 20th Dec10:00 PM (GMT)
I’m extremely passionate about helping people (call them colleagues, users, customers) and about driving success across product organizations. I enjoy coaching, helping and challenging fellow Product colleagues to succeed in their respective areas, as well as learning from them. I consider myself an obsessive learner, and I'm constantly seeking for inspiration and ideas in and out of my field. Keen to find disruptive solutions, challenging assumptions and keeping feet on earth by being informed by data and driven by empathy. I love challenges and complex problems.

Team work and communication was also quite impeccable - you were a great example of the efficiency and thoughtful execution." - Senior UX and Team Lead: "You have a real investment into the customers that I very much appreciate. You were constantly calling out things that created friction in the experience. Your first day you moderated user testing! That's bonkers but also amazing. You also always advocated for more testing as we continued to build. I think we were better off because of that and that extra voice full invested in the customers best interest.

Angels’ approach was always considered and deliberate. He is very analytical, thoughtful and was focussed on making the right decision.
