Meet Ghazaleh: Product Designer. Designer of experience and experimenter of design, with a kick.
1. What brought you to Wave? In my professional life as a designer over the past decade, I have worked and freelanced for numerous startups and technology companies. I’ve also experienced being a full-time entrepreneur and business owner for the last two years. Creativity, passion and challenging problems to solve are essential to my growth. The mission to help small business owners do more of what they do best deeply connected with me as an entrepreneur and contractor. Experiencing the downfall of bad accounting taught me a lot about the product I wanted to build and how I managed money. I knew about Wave through my tech connections, and LinkedIn showed me that I had 4 connections who worked there. They are all very smart and intelligent people that I had worked with in the past. I think it was fate that brought me here.
2. What's the best part of your job? I am solving some of the toughest problems to solve in cloud bookkeeping and accounting. I get to work with a team of smart, hard-working and passionate people who love what they do. It’s really amazing to see everyone smile every single day. The saying that smiling makes you happier is true and you get to experience that at Wave. The CEO is simply amazing. He’s just like your other co-worker sitting beside the office entrance. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that in any company I’ve been a part of. Being a company that helps entrepreneurs and small business owners is the icing on the cake.
3. What is something you've learned since joining Wave? Working hard as a team with passionate people on challenging problems in a fun and engaging environment is inspirational. That’s something I will always keep in mind as a product designer and entrepreneur.
