James Bull

Principal Design Operations Program Manager


I'm a DesignOps leader with over 15 years of experience in design, leadership, and operations. I’m currently at Microsoft, providing Design Operations strategy and support to their collaborative apps portfolio. Previously, I spent 7 years at Shopify, establishing and leading the DesignOps practice as the Design team grew from 150 to 600. I focus on developing strategic systems, programs, processes, and teams that increase design's impact across the business.
My enthusiastic optimism supports change through listening, inspiring, and serving others.

An Online Event

What others say

HS Creative Ops events provided both work and life skills ideas I could implement immediately and also allowed me to connect with peers and vendors. I can't put a value on how much this was appreciated and useful!
