Platinion Senior UX/UI Designer, Paris
At BCG, Allies bring a sense of collaboration and excitement to their teams. They create an atmosphere of trust and support in which people can do their best work. André seeks a new perspective.
One of my first lessons at BCG was simply to speak up when you think differently about something. Being bold in this way is a requirement for creating innovative experiences for clients.
A lot of designers don’t know how exceptional BCG can be for creative people. Early in BCG’s recruiting process, I was interviewed by many people, and it was totally worth it. After each interview, my passion for this company grew.
BCG has given me the opportunity to work with wonderful people. From the start of my time here, I brought my vision of the importance of user feedback for how we create a digital product. People here have great knowledge and awareness of those topics. After a few months, I joined BCG Platinion. Today I can talk to people who have the power to enhance the digital experience we provide for customers and to convince clients to change. There is no better company than BCG for having the opportunity to impact the future.
When I look back on what I have learned and what we have achieved in the past two years, I feel very proud and excited. I can’t wait for the next years!
André holds a master’s degree in multimedia from Institut de l’Internet et du Multimédia et Pôle Universitaire Léonard de Vinci (Paris).
