Liana Dumitru

Design manager and entrepreneur with 7+ years of experience in design. I hold a Master’s in entrepreneurship from Columbia University and I’m passionate about building effective teams, and leveraging design to create high growth products.

I currently manage designers at Plaid. Previously, I managed design teams at Dropbox, cofounded a company that was acquired by Coinbase, and spent a few years as a freelance designer.

I'm originally from Romania, I studied in Paris and New York, worked in London, and now live and work in San Francisco. I geek out on design, tech, art, and I absolutely love books. And chocolate.


If you want to chat about design, books, chocolate, or anything else, just send me a direct message on Twitter. I'm available for side collaborations and talks worldwide.
