Benjamin Ottensten

Product & Design lead
Copenhagen, Denmark

I’m an experienced product builder with a background in both product, design and frontend. I'm currently Product Lead at Speckle.

I enjoy building high-quality user experiences that spark joy and drive growth. I have the best experience doing that when the team is small and made up of talented, empathetic and kind people that care about the details.

Work experience


Product Lead at Speckle

Copenhagen (Remote)

Speckle is an open source platform for 3D data used by computational designers, structural engineers, architects, and other professionals within the architecture, engineering and construction industry.

I'm leading the development of the web platform.


Head of Product at The Org

Copenhagen & New York

The Org is a professional network for companies backed by Sequoia, Founders Fund and more. I led the product development across multiple teams and managed the PMs.

While I was there we grew the traffic to 1 million organic visitors/month from 80k, grew contributions from companies to 35k/month from 1k, went from 6 to 75 team members, rebranded, and raised a series B funding round.

It ended in May 2023 when most of the team was laid off.


Product Designer at GoMore


GoMore is a Danish peer-to-peer car sharing platform operating in multiple European markets. I did product design for web and apps, frontend development and various PM work.

I'm most proud of leading the launch of the now very popular, and also complex, GoMore Keyless product, which allows car owners to rent out their car to strangers without ever meeting.
