The PUXies

We are very different, but we have one thing in common: We love good products and cat pictures.

Marta Andreoni
Marta Andreoni
UX/UI Designer and Workshop facilitator
Her education in Service Design, 11 years’ experience in the branding sector and as an entrepreneur, brought her to build a holistic and multidisciplinary approach to business consultancy. Marta likes to help companies to design digital experiences for their users that fit like a tailor-made dress, simply perfect down to the details, and a joy to use. She loves cats, her favorite plants are cacti.
Elena Sánchez Barbarroja
Elena Sánchez Barbarroja
Senior Project Manager
Elena can communicate in six languages and also speaks Schwizerdütsch. She has a Master's degree in business administration and has worked on projects in the financial sector for seven years. With her organizational talent and experience, she is committed to the successful implementation of new products and ideas. She loves tea and foreign countries.
Tymon Dabrowski
Tymon Dabrowski
UX Designer
Tymon likes pretty things and fixing broken systems. Some people might consider his great attention to details as a disorder, but he’d rather not. During his time in branding he realised very quickly that there is more to brands than colors, fonts and stock images of sleazy business men in airports having fun with post-its on flip-charts and lens-flares: Cat pictures. This was when he decided to dedicate his Austrian Hirnschmalz and Polish Herzblut to create memorable experiences that matter – both at work, and in private.
Belma Delic
Belma Delic
PUX Team Assistant
Before joining Tamedia, she has worked for one of the biggest accounting firms and (be careful) for the Zurich City Police. She completed her apprenticeship in Communication and Administration at the KV Business School Zurich and is now studying Computing Information Management. She loves traveling, but while everyone else is on the lookout for the Hardrock Cafes, she prefers Cat Cafes. She swears she doesn't make bad life-choices, she's just giving life a fair chance to beat her. Living one day at a time, with a fresh baked cookie.
Vladimir Dubal
Vladimir Dubal
Senior Product Manager
Vladimir likes to try things out before they are trendy. As such, he did yoga in the early nineties when only ageing hippies were into it As a Product Manager, Vladimir loves to understand the users' needs & behavior to build products they cannot live without and to drive conversion. For kicks, he enjoys haggling on the flea market.
Yanira Gonzalez
Yanira Gonzalez
Senior User Experience Researcher
Yanira likes hot summer days, unicorns and GinTonic. At Tamedia you’ll find her advocating for the users with the goal of building best-of-breed products giving our users a delightful user experience. Of course she only learned from the best: Before joining Tamedia she worked at Google. She also has a Masters degree in Human-Computer Interaction from the University of Basel.
Anna Niedbala
Anna Niedbala
User Experience Researcher
Anna fled an academic career in psychology to join the ‘real world’ as a UX Researcher. She nerds out over cool testing methods, languages, statistics, and whisky, three of which she uses to understand our users and improve Tamedia products. As a former track and field athlete, she used to have a crippling fear of hurdles. . . but she’s gotten over it now (unlike her penchant for terrible puns). Her primary life goal is to own a cat. Otherwise she loves travelling, rock music, and J. R. R. Tolkien.
Laura Quintana
Laura Quintana
User Experience Researcher
Laura can be compared to her hairdo: ballsy, fascinating and a bit askew. Food (especially sweets) and danceable music make her heart beat faster. In her free time, she is often on the road to explore more places across the world. After engaging at the University of Basel and Google for unique user experiences, she now wants to delight Tamedia product users by researching exactly what they want and what they don’t.
Armin Seltz
Armin Seltz
UX Designer
Armin can take a computer apart and reassemble it in the blink of a blindfolded eye. His background in graphic design, interaction design and many years of web programming enables him to create compelling user interfaces and experiences. Adding to that, he builds testable wireframes and prototypes to verify design ideas.
Robin Simon
Robin Simon
CPO Classifieds, Marketplaces & Ventures; Head of PUX
Robin likes to pet random dogs, hangs out with donkeys and travels the world. In his spare time he works for Tamedia where he strives to build good products - or to support Tamedia companies in building good products. Before that he was boosting up startups for nine years.
René Wenaweser
René Wenaweser
Head of Growth
Opinion-driven product development, vanity KPIs and bad customer- experiences are to blame for his sleepless nights. René advises and supports his clients how successful products are made with a simple ‘growth process’ and with analytics data. Before Tamedia, he was self-employed, worked several years in a bigger consulting firm and in the innovation department of a Swiss Telecommunication Company. Outside of Tamedia you’ll most probably find him in the Swiss mountains or keeping an eye out for boulders worth climbing.
Sophia Marie Winkler
Sophia Marie Winkler
Intern
Sophia has studied Transcultural Communication and is a compulsive fencing language nerd. Besides, she has an affinity for Eastern Europe and enjoys dancing to Balalaika music in the Caucasus Mountains. Before her Tamedia time, Sophia worked as a marketing and event manager for the first space nation. She is now our very own super intern.
Finn McFearsome
Finn McFearsome
External Motivational Speaker
Finn grew up in the streets of Sofia where he studied gangsta rap and international economics. After relocating to Switzerland he realized that he’s pretty fluffy so he took an MBA in cuteness and is supporting the PUX team with infrequent cuddling sessions ever since. He currently lives with his mom and a tribe of stuffed animals.
