Ellen Dunne
Product Lead, Lumatic Inc.

Website | @iamdunne

Ellen Dunne has been leading internet product design and development teams in San Francisco for longer than she cares to admit. She started out heading product design at one of the big online travel companies in the 90’s, ending in a merger with Travelocity. During a five-year hiatus from SF, she did consulting work, lived abroad, and then moved to NY where she taught at Parson’s School of Design.

She was lured back to SF in 2006 by the founders of Dogster and worked there until 2010, leading a massive redesign of the Dogster and Catster sites before their acquisition by Say Media. In May 2011, she joined the team at Lumatic. She is a firm believer in the ‘build, measure, learn’ cycle and other key principles of the Lean UX philosophy, which means she is usually armed with a stack of sticky notes and a Sharpie.
