Product Designer

From an early age, Maureen Herben was fascinated by inventions and gadgets that make life easier and more beautiful. She had a sketchpad where she’d draw all kinds of inventions like noise-cancelling wallpaper, lollipop pencils that would help you concentrate, and non-breaking flower vases. Maureen dreamed that one day, she would become an inventor. Today she's a Senior Product Designer at Zalando, which is the closest thing! Her mission is to deliver delightful and effective solutions to real problems people face.
