Hi! I'm Maya. I'm a strategic product designer who leads with empathy and curiosity. ​​​​​​​
I currently work at Postlight.
With several years of full-stack product design experience, I lead projects with a strategic mindset. My work creatively achieves the project’s goals and supports a larger business vision. I believe in the power of iteration, showing early and often, user research, and appealing visuals. I am a strong communicator, collaborator, and facilitator and love working on teams big and small. 
In addition to UI/UX design, I also practice service, sound, and motion design. I also love to cook, mix music, spend time outside, pet dogs on the street, and spoon-feed myself Nutella. 
Say hi anytime through LinkedIn or by emailing me at mashkovichmaya@gmail.com.
