Hi, I'm Ivan Butyliuk (also known as volca).
Founder at my own startup, I balance this venture with a freelance product design practice, backed by +8 years of design experience.
My journey includes collaborations with both up-and-coming startups and big-name companies. Alongside this, I mentor aspiring designers
. Despite my entrepreneurial commitments I am still open to longer-term freelance opportunities
, hit me up!
My working style tends to be extremely collaborative. I enjoy working on meaty problems that have many moving parts and high degrees of uncertainty. Quick, iterative validation and sharp prioritization are my go-to tools against uncertainty.
Design, for me, is about creating 'aha' moments. Making things feel intuitive, obvious, and clean. Optimizing products for ease and usability by rooting decisions in empathy and context. You can benefit from having me in hybrid roles, some PMing, some code, or at the moments when you need someone to leading cross-functional initiatives.
