Matt Castillo

I'm a designer currently leading product design and research at Kandji. I love to demystify complex problem spaces, shape product strategy around user needs, and empower people around me to do their best work.

About me

As a design practitioner, I love solving problems across the product development processβ€”from user research and discovery, through visual design and prototyping. My background in development helps me narrow in on the details and bridge the gap between design and code.

As a design leader, I look for ways to connect people and ideas, influence processes to drive business outcomes, and support my teams with career development and coaching.

Outside of work, I enjoy ✈️ traveling, πŸ“ˆ investing, πŸ§‘πŸ»β€πŸ’» coding, 🍿 going to the movies, and 🍲 trying new restaurants. Born and raised in El Paso, TX, I’ve since lived in Austin, Chicago, and the Bay Area. I now live in Brooklyn with my partner.
