A design leader with 20 years experience building businesses, brands, & software.

My name is Jonah Bitautas and I lead user experience for the Aim Lab platform at Statespace.

Before life at Statespace:

  • Most recently, I started and led the design, research, and UX functions at LogicGate as the Head of User Experience and grew a team of 6 individuals.
  • Led design and user experience for Draftbit as the Director of Product Design.
  • Co-led product as Head of Design at Blackbox (Cards Against Humanity).
  • Created, led, and grew the product design and user research functions at Home Chef as their first Director of Product Design.

In the years prior to working for tech-driven startups, I was an entrepreneur myself, starting up and growing my design studio, workFunc, for 3+ years before selling it. Before that, I developed my skills and craft by wearing multiple hats at advertising and marketing agencies around Chicago as an Art Director, Designer, and Developer managing work on brands like Motorola, Patagonia, Hyundai, and many more.
