Director of User Research, Wealthfront
Noam was born and raised in Israel, where he began his career in UX researching and designing missile defense systems. He studied psychology in college, and moved to Urbana-Champaign, Illinois where he completed his PhD in psychology. He's since worked in several companies in UX Research roles, including Airbnb, Intercom and currently at Wealthfront. He's fascinated by human relationships, whether it's the relationships people have with a host in an Airbnb, the relationships between businesses and their customers, or the most complex relationship he's discovered so far - the relationship between people and their finances. Noam's greatest inspirations are his wife and daughter, and he lives with them, a huge white pup and a bonkers deaf cat in Mountain View, CA.
