Dimitrie Hoekstra

Product/UX Designer, Speaker, Digital nomad, Motorcyclist, and Technology Evangelist

Former Product Designer for 4+ years at GitLab, currently working at Postman.

Gitlab is an open-core platform for the complete software DevOps lifecycle, used by more than 100,000 organizations around the globe. Meanwhile, Postman is an API platform for building and using APIs with around 20,000,000 users.

Both companies advocate a remote-only work lifestyle which enables me to be a digital nomad. Some time ago I wrote a GitLab blogpost about this!

I live and work remotely from Spain (and the Netherlands). In the past, I have traveled and worked full time for 11+ months across Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Japan, and Europe. Otherwise, I frequent Amsterdam where I attend various meetups, conferences, and in the past helped out as a mentor for Ladies that UX Amsterdam.

Want to know more about how I work? Read my personal readme! Also, feel free to check out my Figma profile for published templates.

While invested in technical topics such as git, continuous integration & deployment, and managing design systems, I am interested in connecting UX with PM in order to best drive products forward effectively. I occasionally take on a freelance project and I enjoy making music. Need to send me money? Feel free to use!

In other words, I am a curious person. Don't hesitate to say or simply WhatsApp me!
