Thoughtfulness, adaptability, and lightheartedness: qualities Mordechai demonstrated to me are pivotal in building product when I worked with him at Output, a music technology company.
Mordechai's determination to continually drive to the why behind user needs, to diverge on problems openly and converge on solutions decisively, and to collaborate closely with us every step of the way, brought certainty to his team working in the complex, uncertain landscape that is music technology. A listener at heart, Mordechai would continually work to not only hear the team's point-of-view when gathering design feedback but to also fully ingest, study, and incorporate it into increasingly thoughtful designs across multiple product surface areas.
When working with Mordechai, I always had a funny feeling he was thinking of ways to make my life easier as a developer. Whether it be considering development effort when producing designs, finding new tools to aid in handoff, contributing source code, or delivering a well placed pun during hard times, I always felt Mordechai was there for me. He's the positive, supportive spirit we all wish for and need on our teams.
