Hey there! My name is Chris Hetem 👋
I’m a designer, product builder, and digital creator with over 10 years working in tech.
Having worked across the full product lifecycle, I have a varied and unique skillset that I bring to my work leaning on lessons learned from my experiences in app development, market research, problem discovery, data analysis, copywriting, UX/UI design, customer success, and product management to name a few.
"Working with Chris has been fabulous and he's a real pro at making the impossible possible!"
– Diane, My Nectar Health
I enjoy zooming in on the details, but also zooming out to see the bigger picture and how it all fits together because that’s what truly makes a product worthwhile.
Driven by my curiosity and desire to make a positive impact on the world, I love solving new and challenging problems. I also believe you can never ask too many questions, no ideas are silly, and that play is an important part of work.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time outdoors, traveling, learning, creating, and experimenting with new ideas and various side projects.
Surfing is my main passion and has brought me to some pretty amazing places, such as Costa Rica, Australia, and New Zealand where I now live.
I’m currently working with early stage startup founders as a cross-functional team member working across both Product and Design, helping to discover, design, and deliver meaningful products that make a real impact.
Open to opportunities
Yes, I’m open to opportunities in-person or remotely and have valid work permits for both the United States and New Zealand.
