My name is Jakub. I'm an 18-year-old product designer and high school student born and living the whole life in a village in the Czech Republic.
My overall goal is building my own project or leading projects. In the future I see myself in a position of a product owner, or some kind of team manager. I want to inspire people to do things. I want to feel valued and respected in the world.
— 3 years of experience with product design.
As a freelancer, I have worked on 20+ projects, including designing brands, mobile apps, websites or growth hacking for companies like Zero Fasting, Naturally Slim, XTND, Undout and more. Freelancing under Studio Godsey since 2020.
I have won 3 Startup Weekends. Organized 2 Startup Weekends in Prague. Created a project StartRemote with a goal to help leaders with maintaining remote teams. Moreover, I was a speaker on LinkedIn Summit CZE 2019.
— I'll bring your team fresh perspective and eager approach. I am not stuck in set processes. I believe I will be able to look at your product from a bit different position and question everything.
— I want to bring your team a strong empathy with younger people, brighten the culture and make the team more diverse.
— I can lighten workload of your senior people. I can be their right-hand, their support, help them with anything to allow them to thrive in their positions, to allow them to do what they do best.
— I have a wide range of skills. I can help you with every stage of design thinking. I have experience with researching, prototyping, user testing, A/B testing, visual design, webflow, and know a bit about coding, Blender, AR/VR design.
— I want to work with people who I'll be able to learn from. I believe that's the best way how to get better in anything.
— I'd like to be a part of a real team. I don't want to work as a stand-alone guy working on his own project. I want to see actual processes, deliver things, present ideas, get negative feedback, bring company real value.
— I'm excited about delivering work, and I am a pretty independent guy, able to design end-to-end, but I don't want to be perceived as a cheap employee. I want to have a mentor who will spend time with me and lead me on the way.
While working with me on a number of client projects, Jakub quickly proved himself capable of carrying the ball and doing big things, solidifying himself as good friend, reliable colleague, inspiring creative, and valuable teammate. His youth brings a fresh perspective and a ton of passion. He has the ability to deliver work under pressure and on time at a level competitive with any junior designer I’ve worked with, and many mid-level designers as well. Anyone who has already collaborated with him knows that he is far ahead of the curve, and with his passion to learn and experiment, his growth will continue to impress and inspire those around him.

Jakub Zegzulka is one of the reasons I wanted to join adplist.org - he is an example of the amazing young talent out there. Being able to mentor and learn from the likes of Jakub has been such an incredible and rewarding experience.

Jakub is the future T-shaped growth marketer you want to have in your team. He joined our growth team at Avocode and brought a lot of value. Jakub focused mainly on the user activation and improving retention. He also delivered 2 experiments we eventually ran and found great learnings. One thing I really appreciate about Jakub is his eagerness to learn, grow and contribute!
Juraj Zamborsky — Head of Growth at Avocode
It was an absolute pleasure to be able to work with Jakub at XTND. From product discovery, market research, and evaluating user testings, all the way to discussing and presenting his findings and ideas to the team - and the actual product design - Jakub was able to do it all extremely well and very quickly. He was able to look at the big picture and make arguments based on the need of the user, but also didn’t forget about the business needs of the company. He is able to give and receive feedback very well, and iterate extremely quickly based on new findings and feedback. I can confidently say that he’d be a valuable addition to any team or organisation.
