VP of Design, Snagajob
Peter Merholz is a user experience and design executive with 20 years experience across a broad range of digital media. He is VP of Design at Snagajob, the leading marketplace for hourly workers. Last year, he co-wrote “Org Design for Design Orgs”, the first book dedicated to the organization, management, and operations of in-house design teams.
In 2001, Peter co-founded Adaptive Path and was instrumental in its growth from a small boutique firm to a renowned international consultancy. More recently, he led the global design team at Groupon, including product/UX, marketing, and brand design where he doubled the team from 30 to 60 and was instrumental in the first redesign of Groupon.com since the company launched.
Peter is also perhaps most (in)famous for coining the word “blog” in 1999. Really. In the OED and everything. Since then, he’s been blogging continuously at peterme.com.
