From finance to product design at Staffjoy


At Springboard, dozens of students have successfully made a career change. One of those students is Tommy Koo.

Tommy previously worked in finance, but didn’t find his job fulfilling. He was more interested in design. Eager to make a change, he enrolled in Springboard’s UX Design workshop and developed a strong relationship with his mentor Sadok.

He completed the course while working full-time, and after graduation his mentor was able to help him find freelance projects to bolster his portfolio.

After finishing Springboard and working on his portfolio, Tommy landed a job at a YC startup in San Francisco. He is now the sole designer on the team at Staffjoy, and he loves what he does.

Watch Tommy tell his story in his own words below!
