✌︎ Jannis Hegenwald

Hi, I'm Jannis. I am a design manager at Atlassian, supporting web and mobile teams across Confluence. Previously, I led automation and integration design for Trello, worked on a chat tool to compete with Slack, and developed design strategies for companies like Mercedes-Benz, Experian, Dell, and Samsung.

2021 – now: Confluence
2018 – 2021: Trello
2017 – 2018: Stride
2014 – 2017: projekt202

I am a speaker on the topics of design, teamwork, and communication, and I mentor designers on ADPList. Here are some of my recent talks: 

  • How to champion inclusive language on your team by unlearning — Atlassian team21, 2021
  • Futuring Your Design Career: How to Craft Your Path in the Design Industry — Austin Design Week, 2021
  • Ramp up remote: How to build community and culture in distributed teams — General Assembly, 2021

If you're looking for a speaker or panelist, I'd love to chat.

Originally from Germany, I currently live in Austin, TX, with my partner and our two dogs. I love reading, being outdoors, and I never say no to a road trip.
