Designer & Product Lead, Climate

Zarino is one of our multi-talented designers, combining user research, prototyping, visual design, and frontend development, to make sure our products are beautiful, simple, and delightful to use.

In 2021 he took on the role of Product Lead for our Climate programme – defining the strategy and working closely with the team to deliver simple, impactful services around the climate emergency.

Zarino has a background in communication studies and social science. His MSc at the Oxford Internet Institute saw him analysing everything from online privacy law and micro-economics to participation and power around open government data.

Before joining mySociety in April 2014, he served as VP of Product at data-munching web startup ScraperWiki.

When he’s not working on mySociety projects, he blogs on design and technology, organises the Liverpool chapter of the Awesome Foundation, and thinks about joining the gym.
