👨💻 I am Jim (@jimzarkadas), a UI engineer turned product designer from Greece, living in Utrecht, Netherlands. ⚡️I help solo founders and teams grow their product by coming closer to their users, through UX courses, 1-1 coaching and other freelance services. In the meantime, I am also building my own micro-SaaS product in public to democratize user testing. 💪 Before, I was the Design Lead at TicketSwap.com, one of the most successful tech companies in Amsterdam with 5+ million unique users, and I co-founded Befoolish, a boutique design studio with clients across Europe and US.
💭 Thinkoutloud - A micro-SaaS user testing tool for solo founders and small product teams
My mission with thinkoutloud.io is to make user testing accessible to small teams and solopreneurs (aka IndieHackers). User testing is the best way to understand your users and come closer to them. But for some reason all the tools in the market are expensive and focused on large companies. Thinkoutloud, is a web application that allows you to send a link to people that are interested into giving you feedback, and then, they can record themselves using your website without installing any plugin or any external software.
