Hi, I'm

Designer / Speaker / Feminist 

Working on building human centric services

Diversity & Inclusion believer đŸŒˆâœŠâœŠđŸ»âœŠđŸœâœŠđŸż

Hey there, bienvenue ;)

I am Léa, product designer based in Paris, France. 

 

I’m currently VP Design at Payfit, an ambitious start up, where I work on simplifying Payroll and HR management through technology. By the way, I'm hiring, so if you are designer (product, UX, UI, brand) or user researcher, and wish to join a fantastic company in Paris, contact me.

 

I’m a follower of collaborative methodologies such as Lean UX, or Design Thinking.

 

I have the chance to do a job that fascinates me, so I talk about it sometimes.  

I’m also feminist*, with the conviction that all humans should be equal in rights. So on my free time, I organize events or collaborate on initiatives such as mentoring for Hexagon UX to support diversity in Tech.

​

Cause today technologies are shaping the world of tomorrow.

​

*Feminism: The radical notion that women and any LGBTQI+ are people. Theory of the absolute necessity of political, economic, and social rights equality for all.

They worked with me

“Lea is one of the finest Design leader in the French Tech and a great Diversity evangelist at that.

 

During our time at Everoad, Lea & I have been partnering really closely to design & build magical experiences for both Carriers and Shippers across Europe. I have truly enjoyed our collaboration and Lea's unique perspective on how to build sustainable, scalable and user-centric solutions. Our most successful features are mostly based off her work and our Product Designers have learnt so much from her that I am super confident we will be able to continue working using the same methodologies that she has laid out.

 

I have also been extremely grateful of her cross-functional impact ranging from producing a career path for our Design function, working on elevating our bi-annual Development sessions and of course her relentless desire for more Diversity. She is a true advocate for Inclusion and she makes sure that every voice counts. In that, she is a true builder of modern organizations and I'm sure she will be extremely successful in her future leadership roles, be it in Design or other functions."
