About Ben Barden

Ben Barden

I’m a technical expert with deep knowledge of building easy to use web applications. I care greatly about user experience and delivering a product that “just works”. I have worked as a product owner, development manager, developer, and tester.


  • Focus: I’m a problem solver. I enjoy getting to the root of issues, removing friction and pain points, thereby maximising a product’s potential.
  • Organisation: I’m unfazed by having multiple priorities. I align a product’s roadmap with team capabilities and business needs.
  • Attention to detail: I look at the big picture and I also get into the details when needed.
  • Quality-focused: I believe that even the smallest bugs can add up to a below-par experience. I address issues to maintain high product quality.
  • Strong communication: I maintain clear and coherent communication whether I’m dealing with technical or non-technical people. I can explain business requirements to developers, and translate jargon into plain English as required.
