Brian Kalma – Head of UX Zappos.com

Choose your next Boss, Not your next Company

Hello friends! Welcome to the MENO Mistakes Podcast…or whatever the hell this classifies as.

MENO mistakes is all about this one big question:

If you could go back in time to the beginning of your career, what piece of advice would you give to your younger self?

We’ll be asking this this question to a large handful of wise people, so you will be able to make less mistakes of your own?

Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself. – Eleanor Rosevelt

This week we have the glorious Brian Kalma! For those of you who know him, he very much enjoys the word “glorious“.

Best known for the work that he has done as the head of UX at Zappos.com and Gilt Groupe, Brian started his career as a UX expert over 12 years ago when UX, well, wasn’t really a thing. It was this vague concept that companies knew they needed to incorporate in order to make their websites more user focused, but few people knew how. Luckily, for the e-commerce world, Brian Kalma just instinctually understood how to design for people and in his own way, was able to make an impact on how we think about UX today.

Hear what Brian has to say about what he would do differently if he could go back in time…
