Streamtime have announced the growth of their Sydney based team. The new hires strengthen the areas of design and customer success with an aim to double growth in 2019.
Christian Hewitt joins as head of design, along with Sarah Nguyen as brand & product designer.
Hewitt joins with experience working for some of the world’s most forward thinking agencies, including R/GA, Huge and Elephant, for the likes of Google, Apple, Nike, Beats, YouTube, Electronic Arts and Red Bull and being recognised with awards at Cannes, D&AD and The Webbys.
He is a current member of InVision’s Design Leadership Forum and teaches visual design at General Assembly in Sydney.
Joining the design team with Hewitt is Sarah Nguyen.
Nguyen has over twelve years of experience working with major creative agencies including eskimo design, Collider, Christopher Doyle & Co and Houston Group.
Before joining Streamtime, Nguyen most recently co-founded a financial advice start-up leading product design and growth.
Streamtime MD Andy Wright said: “It’s really exciting to be working with Christian again after our days at R/GA.
“His structured approach to design and dedication to user research is already paying dividends.
“The fact that we can combine that with Sarah’s natural talent for brand and digital design as well as her recent startup experience means we’re better positioned than ever to design project management software that the creative industry will love.”
In the customer success team, both Polina Evmenova (feature image) and Simon Lesch have joined bringing valuable agency experience.
Evmenova joins with agency experience across clients such as Me Bank, Western Sydney University and Seafolly. Her role sees her take on the first point of contact with customers new to Streamtime, hosting webinars, demonstrations and onboarding.
Lesch joins with a remit to grow the Streamtime customer base amongst larger agencies and in-house teams – coincidentally a job that he’d already been doing in agencies in Sydney.
With recent experience at Host/Havas and The Hallway, working on clients such as ANZ, TAL, Google, he brings with him a wealth of agency insight and experience, including the implementation of Streamtime into 2 previous businesses.
Wright said: “We’ve never had such an experience and ability to connect with the industry and our customers under one roof.
“We’re already ranked highly when it comes to our service and support. Adding Simon and Poli to the team strengthens and proves our commitment to the creative industry.”
Lesch added: “Project management in creative businesses and agencies can be a challenge. The fresh, creative approach that Streamtime brings is something that they can really benefit from. The tool is enjoyable, intuitive and makes job management so much easier. Having used the software in the past, it’s a pleasure to now be part of its future.”
The hires follow rapid development of the product in the last 2 years since the relaunch designed by Sydney creative agency, For The People. Developments include new solutions for time tracking, scheduling, invoicing and quoting along with bespoke integrations with accounting software, Xero, MYOB and Quickbooks.
