Design & UX Manager.

@Cognizant Softvision. 2018 - Present

I’m responsible for the Design & UX Practice in the Argentina Studio. I’ve spun up the team from scratch, and in 2 years we are very close to becoming the biggest Design team within the company. We are still actively growing, even as we switched to full-remote throughout the pandemic.

My main responsibilities are Talent Attraction, Talent Growth and Talent Retention. I work with Marketing for Talent awareness, associating with local Design communities and building our presence in local Design events. I also work with Recruiting, to generate candidate pipelines, resulting in hiring and onboarding Designers to the team, and I work with Delivery to staff positions with the proper Design talent for each project.

As the Local Practice Manager I provide feedback, mentor and coach our Designers on their professional careers. Together with the Team Leads we’ve created a Career Path for Digital Design Talent Growth, including a comprehensive Skills Matrix spanning Interaction, Product Design, Strategy, Research and Facilitation. We’ve also created initiatives to foster creativity, high self agency, autonomy and other skills such as envisioning and presentation.

As a Global Design Lead I work with the rest of the international management to guide and foster cohesion in our offerings, best practices and building thought leadership across our worldwide teams. This includes running Design client relationships, acting as a Design Technical Director, running co-creation, ideation and discovery workshops with clients, and working with Client Partners and Solutions to pitch projects when pursuing opportunities.

  • I focus on making sure our Designers have all they need to perform at their best level.
  • I concentrate on Sensemaking, Learning Velocity, Presumptive Design & Rapid Prototyping.
  • I facilitate workshops, providing Vision & UX Strategy for both clients and internal projects.
