Product Designer


Ben Ronning is a User Experience Designer based in San Francisco


Hi, I’m Ben. I believe too many people spend 8 hours every day in jobs they hate. I’m curious about the impact of emerging technologies, and the potential opportunities to create a more effective and engaging workplace. I skew optimistic, and I’m determined to have a positive impact on the Future of Work.

This year I’m refining my Business and Organization Design process through Hyper Island’s MA in Digital Management. My thesis is focused on ensuring employees stay relevant in changing work environments. Reach out if you’d like to collaborate, or just chat about it.

In the past I helped a create a tool to automate solar design; I co-led the design and launch of a mobile solar assessment tool for one of the largest solar companies in the world; and I helped streamline and launch the first international solar platform.

Aside from this, I like playing music (guitar, drums, and piano), experiencing cities for the first time, going to old movie theatres, and I care deeply about connecting people to their passion. Someday I'd like to own a jazz & supper-club.

I’m currently based in Berlin, but originally come from Sioux Falls, SD (the Rushmore State).
