Senior Design Manager in Oslo, Norway

Hi, I'm a Senior Design Manager at Vipps MobilePay. I love building products and teams.

Work Experience

2018 — Now

At Vipps MobilePay, we're on a mission to create the world's most loved wallet for all. Whether you're shopping online, buying groceries or paying your friends back, we want to make your life easier and more enjoyable.

As Senior Design Manager in the Users department, I have the privilege of leading an amazing design team that's dedicated to making the Vipps and MobilePay apps the best they can be. With 11 million users in the Nordics and growing, we're always looking for new ways to dazzle ✨ our users.

In my previous role as lead designer for our online payments and ID services, I learned firsthand how important it is to stay ahead of the curve and anticipate our users' needs. That's why we're constantly experimenting with new features that make Vipps MobilePay even more indispensable.

2016 — 2018

As a designer at Uniform I worked across a range of disciplines, focusing on branding & identity, user experience and interaction design and frontend development.

At Vipps, inclusive design is a guiding principle for everything we do. That means creating products that are accessible and easy to use for everyone, regardless of their abilities. It's not just the right thing to do – it's also the smart thing to do, because when everyone can use our products, everyone benefits.
