Ash Ivory

Head of Product at Outfit.io

Ash is the Head of Product at Outfit.io, most days you'll find her asking the hard questions in an easy way, splitting hairs over good user experience (don’t worry, she studied graphic design), dodging gender norms (she’s openly queer), helping her product team to solve the right problems (she’s passionate about building a great product), upskilling the office in brewing coffee (coffee, err, that's all). Oh, and riding her motorcycle (it's basically meditation).

Ash is known for her contagious grit and dry sense of humour. She loves lending a hand wherever possible to generate new experiences, acquire new skills and most importantly to get the job done. When she’s not thinking about the product at Outfit, you’ll find her taking photos mostly of her motorcycle and landscapes, in a non wanky way.
