About me

Hi! I am Ainara, and education is my passion because it's the key to change. I am a scientist at heart who after 5+ years of experience working in the Ed Tech world loves building educational products that can transform science education. After my PhD and a short stay at the Science Museum in London, I joined Labster (www.labster.com - a SaaS Virtual Science Simulations company) when it was a very young start up (only 8 people). This means: 1) I'm continuously involved in shaping the company structure and culture: we implemented Holocracy as the way to structure ourselves, we implemented OKRs to set our objectives, we are still refining our metrics, etc. And 2) I've performed many roles in the company: I formally transitioned from Team Lead & Coach (I grew the Content team from 3 to +30 in 2 years), to Product Owner to Product Manager. And in between I did a mini MBA at Harvard, I got certified as Design Sprint Facilitator and I also (still) lead a $4m research project with 2 PhD students. I wonder why I feel these past few years have been crazy. :)

With all of that I don't want to show off, I just want to say that I've done a lot of learning that I'd love to share. This is also a way for me to give back all the help I've had myself during that process.
