The Design Team

We are multitaskers focused on creating the next generation of Chariot products. We are constantly listening to our users to make sure our designs are centered on their real needs and to help validate our solutions.

In our free time we love to explore different coffee places, enjoy a team lunch outdoors and talk about good and bad UX around us.
