👋🏽 Hi, my name is Joseph Benson-Aruna.

I’ve spent the last few years being a digital product designer, product manager and startup founder 👨🏽‍💻. I love the scrappiness of startups and have worked in them almost all 10 years plus of my career. I’ve been lucky to work as a designer at Jobberman, InterSwitch, TeamApt, McKinsey Digital and Carbon, where I’ve helped define the experience of apps millions of people use everyday 👩🏽‍🤝‍👨🏿.

In recent years, I helped found Leanstack and Wallets, working with amazing teams to build and ship products people find useful 🚀. Currently, I lead the tech and product teams at Spleet where we are working to make it easier for people to find homes they can rent affordably 🏠.

I live in Lagos, Nigeria 🇳🇬 and I’m lucky to be blessed with an amazing son ❤️. I love the idea of traveling but not the act of it, enjoy reading books about people/businesses and will happily get lost for hours watching documentaries and comedies on YouTube, Netflix and Curiosity Stream 📺.

If you want to talk about startups, design or anything really, feel free to hit me up at joseph[at]josephbenson[dot]me 💌.
