Update

Matte Scheinker is a technology executive driven by an obsession to craft delightful product experiences that solve real human problems. Currently, he is the Head of Products for FutureAdvisor, where he leads the product vision, direction and execution. Prior to FutureAdvisor, Matte has held product experience leadership positions at companies including Hightail, AOL and Yahoo.

Matte had a deep interest in technology from a young age, gaining expertise in such powerful computer programing languages as BASIC and Pascal. After studying Psychology at the University of Maryland, he decided to marry his love of technology with his interest in the human mind by focusing on user experience. Before the turn of the century dot-com bust, Matte cut his teeth as an interaction designer at a small business printing startup, Liveprint.com (which later became kinkos.com). He then joined Yahoo to build user experience teams across their communications, community and enterprise business units. After Yahoo, Matte was brought to AOL to refocus the company on building consumer-centric products by fixing the struggling product management and design functions. At AOL, Matte’s teams were also responsible for high profile strategic projects like Patch blogs and the TechCrunch redesign. After AOL, Matte joined Hightail (previously known as YouSendIt) as their Chief Product Officer.

In his “spare time,” Matte is a sought after consultant, advisor and speaker on product experience topics. He currently resides in San Francisco with his lovely baking wife and wonderfully adventurous daughter.
