Etay is a hands-on executive caliber that supported me and my team to define and plan new UX methodologies. He played a key role in the transition of Guidewire to its next-generation cloud platform.
I initially hired Etay to evaluate our UX practices and architecture. After identifying the gaps and needs, Etay helped us to execute the transition to our next-generation cloud platform. while performing multi-disciplinary roles (product, UX, development). Etay led the UX team (25+ designers, distributed in many locations), worked closely with the development teams and the CTO to develop the design system, productize and scale it to meet the needs of our different product lines. Etay also tapped into his network and helped us with key hires, including the head of UX (which replaced him) and senior design managers.
I highly recommend working with Etay. You can entrust him with your most challenging and impactful tasks.

Etay helped the gong.io executive team to turn high-level, whiteboard ideas into interactive prototypes, which we used as part of our fundraising efforts and product development. Etay's ability to distill key value to the user, create a great experience, and quick turnaround of prototypes made the process very helpful for us.

Etay and his team at BrightAct transformed Earn from a direct service nonprofit to a leading fintech in a rapid period of time, allowing us to reach tens of thousands of financially insecure Americans in less than a year. I can’t speak highly enough of the impact they have had on our organization. In all honesty, I wasn’t sure what we wanted to do could be done until we started to work with BrightAct. Now I see so many opportunities for our organization and our clients. Etay works extremely hard to understand what we are trying to achieve for our clients and has delivered well beyond our expectations. His advice and support to me are invaluable as we set out to build products and services that will transform the lives of those struggling to succeed financially. We consider Etay and BrightAct to be a part of our team and I feel incredibly lucky to be working alongside such dedicated and passionate individuals.

Etay helped us envision, explore, design and prototype the next generation versions of our Vcage product. He helped us visualize the value to our users through a simple, but powerful, mobile friendly user-interface. We benefited a lot from his ability to transfer a high-level concept into a tangible design and prototype.

After so many years in the industry, I feel comfortable saying - it’s rare that one comes across a standout talent like Etay.
I hired Etay to join my team and lead the UX and SW activities, as part of a complex project. In that role, Etay successfully managed several scattered teams, both within SanDisk and subcontractors. Using his natural and peaceful attitude, Etay expanded his influence and positive impact on HW and marketing/branding aspects. I was always amazed by Etay’s ability to conclude complicated meetings and brainstorming sessions which seem unsolvable and bring everyone to the same page ready to move forward with the implementation.
I’m sure Etay would be an essential asset to any project or activity he leads as his contribution and impact are a true asset for top management.

At Model N, he has delivered beyond expectations on the projects he worked on. He helped with creating a solid information architecture for a complex application that we will be rolling out to the market at the end of the year.
This application not only needs to be interactive, it is also intended to provide users with a flexible tool to create complex strategies. Etay not only came up to speed on the application functionality and vision, he also provided new and creative ideas to architect the user interface of the application in ways that will set a new design standard for our products.
He worked extremely well with our product management and engineering teams, adapting to our development process. He was instrumental in conducting in-depth user feedback sessions both internally and externally while delivering quick prototypes in order to visualize the concepts being discussed.
During his tenure at Model N, Etay also helped improve the current user interface paradigms for other application areas from minor cleanup work to introducing additional concepts to our overall user interface paradigm.
He is extremely easy to work with, flexible to adapt to our organization's needs from the process and people perspective while delivering results beyond expectations and on time on budget.
