Nice words from people who have worked with Eoghan

Eoghan is a brilliant designer who is naturally empathetic and cares deeply about the user's experience of whatever it is he's working on

He's innovative, creative, curious, constantly learning and growing. He's a wonderful human being and I have absolutely loved working with him for the past 6 years. He has an incredible ability to see problems from multiple perspectives and to design experiences that aren't just usable, but meaningful. I'm happy to recommend Eoghan for any design role. He would be an amazing asset for any company.

Eoghan is a friendly, highly proficient, and unpretentious designer

He helped me settle into working in a new role in a new city, invited me to relevant team rituals, and even welcomed me into his artisan coffee club. We worked closely on the early stages of the Workday Help product, and he was instrumental in setting me (and accessibility) up for success both culturally and operationally in the Workday Dublin product area. I highly recommend him as a designer and a great team player.

Eoghan is a one in a million product designer

In my role as PM I worked closely with Eoghan while growing CYGNVS from its earliest days to where it is now. Eoghan's was always a joy to work with, his positive attitude and collaborative approach combined with his deep design chops meant we were able to move extremely quickly to rapidly build new features and improve the end to end usability of our entire platform at the same time.

Thank you so much for answering all of my UX questions with enthusiasm! Thank you for kindly designing the easter eggs-travaganzaa scavenger hunt poster for UI-plat. Overall he's egg-cellent to work with.

Eoghan is so great to work with, he brings so much fun and energy to the team

Not only has he recently improved the Case Detail for Help by running a series of design jams to really bring the Help UX team and the Help Dev team together, but he has been championing learning in the UX org and beyond by creating the UX library. He singlehandedly gathered UX books, created a method to take out a book by text, and promoted the library to the entire Dublin office. He also supplies the 3rd floor with a bulk order of coffee (pre-covid). He's always there for nonsense chats and for music recommendations. Thanks for being so much fun Eoghan!

Eoghan also pioneered the UX book club which has been a wonder resource for knowledge sharing among teammates. Thank you Eoghan for all your schemes and also for taking the time to onboard me onto Help. We are very lucky to have Eoghan on our team!

CYGNVS

Eoghan is an extremely competent and creative designer, as shown by his most recent work at CYGNVS

He played a crucial part in building and designing the foundations for what today is a game changing product. His former experience as an engineer allows him to easily communicate and collaborate with an engineering team, as he understands the challenges of converting designs into an actual product. Above all, he is a great guy, someone that drives the culture within a team forward and that is always willing to help and wear whatever hat is needed to make the team successful.

You can tell that he cares a lot about the quality of his work and it comes through in the quality of the features we deliver to our customers. Eoghan is great craic and works very well with all of the developers on our team. He is hands on and is always willing to jump on a zoom with a developer to work through a design problem. He's a big part of the reason that we all work so well together. Will miss working with you Eoghan :)

Overdue shout out and thank you to Eoghan for his support working on the best practices for cross functional collaboration KR with me in support of our org’s OKR - Work Better Together

Not only did Eoghan author some of the best practices he also took the lead on getting other members of the working group together to also collaborate and contribute to their creation as well. Thank you for your thought partnership along the way and for helping me to kick off the work with the greater project team by creating materials and guidance for the working groups. I look forward to future opportunities to collaborate with you!

From the time I started Eoghan has helped me with issues I didn't even know I had until he offered his assistance.

He's a very conscientious colleague; when a problem arises for someone else he'll think of the other people that might affect and offers help to them. As a newbie to the team, it's great having people like Eoghan looking out for you, whether it's technical difficulties, useful workarounds, coffee/tea fixes or leaving presents on people's desks. Thanks Eoghan!

Eoghan has a deep and extensive knowledge of and interest in user experience and interaction design

These are complemented by the practical, analytical and problem-solving skills he brought to our projects. He was generous in sharing these skills and was an excellent mentor. He was especially impressive at producing outstanding work and keeping his cool in high-pressure environments. His easy-going and personable manner as well as his skills and diligence made him a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Eoghan and would be delighted to have the opportunity to work with him again in the future.

Have had the pleasure of working with Eoghan in two distinct environments, first at Workday and later at CYGNVS, where he was our first designer leading us to our 55 million series A investment

In both environments he brought his wealth of experience and creativity to the table, setting the bar high for design standards. His hands-on approach to design was always an inspiration to work with. Often, you’d find engineers and product managers gathered around his screen as he would transform an idea discussed in a meeting to a design reality. Eoghan leads by doing. He fosters collaboration and is always an advocate for humans using the software we build. Eoghan is an asset to any team fortunate enough to have him onboard.

Without a shadow of a doubt he is the most thoughtful, empathetic, and talented designer I have ever had the pleasure of working with

Eoghan has been an incredible mentor and friend to me throughout my career as a designer from initially working together when I was an intern at Workday, to now, over 4 years later at CYGNVS. Eoghan instilled confidence in me and my ability to do my job, and always made sure to take time out of his day to help if there was anything I needed. I hope that one day we get to work together again, but until then, whoever gets to work with this friendly giant is in for a treat. You da man Eoghan!

We regularly exchange ideas and these discussions are fun and informative. As an aside, Eoghan’s organising and running of the “cwfyclrb” (coffee club) is much appreciated. He goes to great trouble to ensure we’re all fuelled with delicious caffeine. Thanks for everything Eoghan!
