Farid Sabitov is a DesignOps Enthusiast with 10+ years in Tech and Experience Design. Throughout his career, he has launched and contributed to the growth of products in different domains that varied in size and scale: from startups to large enterprises, from local to global products. Now he works with enterprise companies from Fortune 500 in EPAM — his main focus is growing the DesignOps competency within the organization and across EPAM’s design discipline.
Nowadays, more and more organizations around the world structure their processes around design as a core part of their business. And as design practices become more complex there is a growing demand for the operation teams. Challenges to be addressed include: high competition and variety of the design tools market, the evolution of design handoff, remote user research, management of large distributed teams, and others.
Based on his experience and interest in the topic, Farid works with EPAM’s design teams and runs corporation-wide training sessions about different tools and practices. His main goal is to increase efficiency to bring the design competency to the next level.
With the rising complexity of the design discipline, just having a clear process is not enough. That’s why it’s important to invest in building integrations, plugins, and scripts to simplify the onboarding for newcomers and optimize the processes for the existing team members.
Farid is the creator of plugins for Sketch and Figma with more than 5k installs. He helps organizations to analyze, scale, and automate processes inside and outside design teams by using integrations and scripts. That’s the topic that he will cover at the DesignOps Summit including the demonstration of practical examples. He will also touch base on how your company’s investment in automatization and open source projects can improve brand awareness to attract the best talents in the world.
