Hello, I'm Hayden Bleasel. I'm an Australian product designer and frontend engineer living in the United States. I've had the privilege of working with many fantastic companies including Google, Nike, Toyota, Timberland, National Geographic, Canva, Westfield and Australian Ethical.

I'm currently leading the Product and Design at Corellium, a virtual hardware lab for government defense contractors, security researchers, penetration testers and IoT developers. Our mission is to make the world more secure by providing a platform for hypervisor virtualization and advanced research.

After hours, I run Beskar, a digital playground and my corner of the internet to publish content, build apps and experiment with new technologies. So far, I've published a few apps such as:

  • Neutral — a carbon offsetting app.
  • Neutral API — for scaling global reforestation (coming soon).
  • Refraction — an AI-powered code improvement suite.
  • waitlist.email — fast, unbranded waitlists for developers
  • Desync — share and find inspiration from AI-generated art.

Towards the end of 2020, I contracted for R/GA, a innovation consultancy and digital design and advertising agency, where I worked on a variety of projects for large clients with various teams of talented people.

From 2017 to 2021, I ran an agency called Jellypepper where I focused on startups in “disruptive industries” such as self-driving cars, AI, biotechnology, cryptocurrency, renewable energy, drone delivery, cybersecurity and even outer-space logistics. Many startups I worked with continued on to raise millions in funding and some even got acquired, such as Clipchamp by Microsoft. I was also fortunate enough to work with the open-source community, such as the OpenJS Foundation and ESLint.

From 2016 — 2017, I was Head of Product and Design at Spaceship, a technology-focused superannuation fund that gave investors exposure to tech companies so they can “invest where the world is going, not where it's been”. We raised $1.6M from Atlassian's Mike Cannon-Brookes and ShowPo's Jane Lu, then a further $19.5M from NEA, Sequoia Capital and Valar Ventures.

In the summer of 2015, I was a Product Design intern at Palantir where I was fortunate enough to work with a small team on an anti-fraud and big data analysis project for a U.S. government agency.

Prior to this, I was a Frontend Engineer at Sumry, partner at Gunmetal Studio, Automation Engineer at MindArc, Frontend Engineer at Zookal and so on. You can find a more detailed list of my experience on my read.cv or LinkedIn.

In 2016, I graduated with two degrees from the University of Technology, Sydney — a Bachelor of Business (Management) and a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (Enterprise Systems Development). While I was at university, I created Presumi — a job application and resume tracking platform that I ended up licensing to SEEK in Hong Kong for a bit.

I also completed HarvardX's CS50x Computer Science course in 2021 and Arm's ESE101 Embedded Systems course in 2022.

As a complete list of companies and clients, I have worked with AdvanCell, Airwallex, Audience Republic, Baraja, Brighte, Canva, Clipchamp, Corellium, Elevio, ESLint, Faethm, Flaunter, Flirtey, Futrli, Grow, Gunmetal Studio, Inventia, Kerbly, MindArc, Notiv, Perlin, Pursuited, Resolution Collective, Rezi, Ribit, Shippit, Siesta Campers, Simply Wall St, Snug, Space Machines Company, Sumry, Tank Stream Ventures, Tyro Payments, UpGuard, UTS, Zibbet, and Zookal.
