Selected products

Seznam.cz browser
The company called Seznam.cz has a similar portfolio of products as Yahoo. The Google and Seznam.cz search engines had a same market share in the Czech Republic until 2014. I helped to refine two-factor authentication, co-designed new bookmarks together with a new look to a user profile which initiated changes in product priorities defined by the board.

Windy Maps
Beautiful outdoor maps for active people that help you to find new places, routes and get you there without the use of data. I participated during a definition of the concept, designed minimal viable product and helped to frame a communication before the launch.

CF Hero
People fighting with cystic fibrosis have to follow a challenging treatment which they underestimate in puberty. I have been working with Petr Kosnar and Zdeněk Lanc on the concept that should help them to build rehabilitation habits and break misinformation which we explored as the most painful during the user research.

Public transport web
Czech public transport passengers missed an ability to compare connections between each other and they didn’t know which way to take in order to catch the following connections. We tried to fulfil these underserved needs in a new web app where I stay behind the concept and definition of a product metrics.

Recommendations

Petr is a natural-born quick-witted team player, probably because of his hockey roots. He is always searching for ways how to improve not only the project he is currently working on but also himself and his team by never-ending continual learning. His exceptional skills to engage people, pushing the limits and always thinking in “how might we” way never stop to fascinate me and fill me with motivation, inspiration and huge load of energy and faith.
Jiří Sekera – Head of design – Seznam.cz

It is rare to come across such a talented guy like Petr. His work at Usertech enriched the whole team provided an alternative view of the work we are doing. I was particularly impressed by Petr’s ability to perform under stress, his insightfulness and attention to detail. I hope our paths will cross in the future again and I can recommend Petr for any UX related position.
Jan Beránek – Founder & CEO – U+_

Petr is one of the most valuable people I have ever met. Very smart, experienced and goal oriented team player. With every problem there was a solution. His focus keeps everything moving smoothly. He makes sure all the deadlines are met, and makes sure that whatever project he is working on meets the highest standards. Petr is highly creative and a very easy-going person to work with. It is an honor for me to recommend and endorse him.
