Nic Bertino

I’m a California-based user experience leader that loves to make technology that is a joy to use.

What I do best:

  • User research: I help organizations understand who their users are, the contexts in which they will be using a product, and how they use technology through qualitative and quantitative analysis.
  • Application Design and Development: My work on web applications spans over 15 years. I stay sharp with my coding through open source contributions and freelance work. This helps me maintain an understanding of end-to-end product development, from technology stacks to browser implementation.
  • Leadership and Management: I lead teams that are user-centric and focused on delivering. I utilize the same empathy from user research in management as well, finding ways to keep teams growing, productive, and happy.
  • Business: My entrepreneurial acumen helps me understand the challenges that businesses face and communicate effectively across levels and responsibilities.

Outside of work, I play a lot of volleyball, go on motorcycle trips, fiddle with analog synthesizers, and try to find the best espresso on Earth.
