I am passionate about great user experience and convinced that a data-driven approach will maximize Atomize chances of success.

On top of that I will bring a lot of positive energy and inspiring leadership with the ambition of making this – already amazing – workplace even better.
Please share some personal trait that no one else knows about you:
I love being a product evangelist! In order to succeed as such, I need to truly understand the users of the product, and I find that the best way of doing so is by experiencing their reality. During such an occasion, when I was studying nurses on hospital units in Philadelphia, I was fortunate to observe a very rare (and successful) surgery separating conjoined twins!
"I am very proud and happy that Ellen, with her broad industry leadership experience, deep skillset in UX/UI design; is taking the role as Head of Product at Atomize. Our clients will soon note Ellen's entry and she brings unique value to the team as Atomize now levels up its global expansion, " says Alexander Edström, the CEO of Atomize.
