Agorafy Brings On Some Unique New Talent And Promotes From Within

Cutting edge technology needs cutting edge talent. We got it.

By Team Agorafy September 21, 2016

Things are moving fast at Agorafy these days. Along with our upcoming new platform, national expansion and the revamped website, the team itself has also made some big moves. With two new teammates and two promotions from within, our team is ready to build Agorafy to the next level of real estate technology.

First, we would like to say hi and welcome Monique Naoum, our new Director of User Experience. Born in Beirut, Monique came to New York in 2004 as a muralist and fine artist, but was eventually drawn to New Media. She went on to earn her BFA in Electronic Design and Multimedia and a master’s degree in Interactive Telecommunications. But perhaps most importantly, Monique brings an intuitive sense of how people think and interact with technology. Already her presence in the office has inspired us to make the Agorafy user experience as exceptional as the skills and knowledge she brings.

Another new addition to the team, Anatoliy Zaslavski, has recently joined us as our Front End Programmer. From his years at NYU, Toli brings his unique aesthetic sense to Agorafy, that can be seen gracing the layout and design of our upcoming website re-vamp.

Already the Agorafy team is brimming with talent. Alex Rivera has been with Agorafy for more than two years contributing to the design and user experience of our website. Now, working closely with our Director of UX, Monique, Alex has been promoted to Head of Design. Although Alex comes to us with a degree from SFU, it’s his hands on experience, exceptional illustrative skills and iconoclastic style that brings a new look to all things Agorafy.

Also within our ranks, Nathalie Nayman has moved from the data team to the media side of the office as our new Content Manager, bringing her wealth of international media experience. After working as a journalist in Moscow, Nathalie participated in local politics and social movements in Cairo where shecovered the protests and political upheaval of the Arab Spring. Ms. Nayman came to us at Agorafy almost three years ago where, as Content Manager, she produces and oversees unique and creative content for the Newsroom.
