Who's James?

Who's James?

Thought you'd never ask. 

I'm a senior product manager for Xero, based in San Francisco.  Previously, I led the product design team at Tyro Payments and looked after their digital channels as a senior product manager. One of the main things we focused was scaling an award winning banking app to Australian small businesses, growing at around 25% a week. I've also helped launch an analytics platform for CBA to millions of users and redesigned an insurance quoteline for Real Insurance to improve uptake by 20%, amongst many other things. If you're interesting in hearing more, give me a shout or check me out on LinkedIn.

What about in my free time? You can find me talking tech, playing tennis (poorly), reading, or losing to 12 year olds at Gran Turismo online.

Is it “best practice” design, or just stealing?
