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.
I had the pleasure of working with Mordechai for over a year and a half and I would be happy to have him on my team again any time!
Mordechai is a thoughtful, considerate, humble, and incredibly talented designer. Not only does he take feedback with grace but he acts quickly on it and is able to work it into new solutions. Mordechai is always willing and eager to learn and try new things, making him a very adaptable designer.
The icing on the cake is Mordechai's incredible attention to detail. His visual design and motion skills are superb, and he's able to apply his product thinking to his work in craft, making him a very versatile designer.
If you're reading this, I hope you get a chance to work with Mordechai, he's an amazing asset to have on any team!
Mordechai and I have worked closely on a growth-focused team at Output. He’s been my direct design support for creative initiatives of varying complexity. I’ve worked with several designers at the beginning of their careers but would choose to work with Mordechai on product design work over the majority of them. Mordechai is a thoughtful, detailed, highly...repeat highly, skilled designer.
If hiring managers seek creatives that are willing to stretch the limits of their executions and try things nobody will expect, Mordechai delivers with the expansiveness and quality of his design thinking. He’s often stunned me with his liberal exploration of animation and 3D concepts. He’s been an incredible teacher to the designers & product teams here.
He’s an evenly keeled thinker when things get tough. Hire him.
