Shawn Chittle is a seasoned design leader and tech executive, digital product manager, product designer, customer evangelist and user experience expert having managed teams as small as 1 and as large as 20.
He co-founded his first startup TUCOWS in his hometown of Flint, Michigan while still in school.
Shawn then joined Amazon in Seattle in the early days (that's Jeff Bezos cheering us on!)
A commercially trained pilot, Shawn's landed a Boeing 777 in a 40 knot crosswind, so not much scares him.
He enjoys challenges, puzzles, problems, and solving them as elegantly as possible.
Today, Shawn's based in the East Village of Manhattan where he strives to bring design-thinking to startups and more established companies all over the city. His current role is helping renters, sellers, and agents at StreetEasy in NYC, which is part of Zillow Group, and for whom he shares all their core values of “Do the Right Thing” “Include & Empower” “Move Fast, Think Big” “Operate With Excellence” “Own It” “Turn On the Lights” and “ZG is a Team Sport”
When he's not working, you can find him bike riding around the city, watching movies, and hiking upstate, and playing with his canine friends. You can catch him on Twitter @shawnchittle
