Welcome Amanda, Kendra, and Billy!

Hello friends of Balsamiq!

It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you the latest 3 additions to the Balsamiq team.

Amanda Hajek

Amanda is our sponsorships and raffles coordinator, and she's based in Chicago, IL, USA.

She manages our huge sponsorship budget (currently at $350,000/year), a big part of our giving back efforts.

In her spare time Amanda loves to surround herself with friends, cracking jokes about bad Sci-Fi movies and playing games. She also can bake you the tastiest chocolate chip cookie you will ever have.

When Amanda learned about how giving back to others was so central to Balsamiq’s values she instantly fell in love and is delighted to be part of the team.

Kendra Kirk

Kendra's job title is "EMEA Sales Support and Special Projects". The 'special projects' have to do with legal things like GDPR, and also partner/reseller management.

She is based near Paris, France.

Fun Fact: Kendra will never leave the house without two things: her beloved Kindle (308 books and counting!) and an umbrella (did you know that it rains more in Paris than in London?)

After putting Balsamiq on her "Dream Jobs" spreadsheet a few years ago, Kendra is very excited to join the Sales Support team, and leverage her diverse work background to help manage sales and legal projects.

Billy Carlson

Billy is our new Design Educator. He is tasked with teaching our community how to wireframe properly, both online and in-person.

He will help us grow our educational efforts faster. Billy is also based in Chicago, IL, USA.

In his spare time he likes to play ice hockey, draw and paint, and listen to podcasts. Sometimes combining them all into quite a mess on the ice.

Billy has been using Balsamiq for wireframing for many years and distinctly remembers having to justify his use of “Comic Sans” in his designs over and over again. It’s about the content! He is honored to be joining the Education team and looks forward to helping current and aspiring designers learn to master the craft of wireframing.

We are thrilled to work with Amanda, Kendra, and Billy, and are thankful they have chosen to help Balsamiq rid the world of bad software!
