Saielle DaSilva

Head UX, Cazoo

Saielle’s approach to org design was informed by her time as a volunteer in the wake of hurricane Sandy in October 2012. In the midst of a catastrophic event, volunteers had to act fast to help people, save lives, and transform chaos into effective response. A few activists were able to organize mutual aid, provide deep coverage of actual events, and feed people long before established organisations.

Saielle’s worked with AT&T, Amazon, and Pivotal and is now Head of User Experience at Cazoo; where her experience of hiring and building culture at scale has been adopted by a company that has grown from startup in 2018 to over 2,000 employees today.
