Meet our founder

Welcome to Liftyz!

My name is Janus Tiu, and I am the founder of Liftyz, a Senior Experience Designer, and a content creator with 60,000 followers across several social media platforms. 

Why did I found Liftyz? After years of teaching design and coaching designers, and as a career switcher myself, I've discovered that many designers lack the skills necessary to market themselves and land a fulfilling job successfully.

I began creating educational content about job hunting that quickly went viral, which led me to launch Liftyz, an innovative online community and career coaching service for product and UX designers. I set on a journey to disrupt the professional development landscape for designers.

Our Product/UX Design Career Accelerator being the first-ever comprehensive and curriculum-based career coaching program that utilizes on-demand materials and 1:1 & group coaching. In only one week, we received 415 registrations for our waitlist.

Through my content, I strive to provide bite-sized educational content on UX design and tech career advice to help young professionals land tech jobs and promote diversity in the industry. I have also been invited to speak at design events and participate as a judge in university design competitions.

A little fun fact about me: before diving into the world of product design, I was a school teacher and psychotherapist. In fact, I'm a registered school teacher in Hong Kong, having passed all my teacher assessments at college with flying colors. So, I know a thing or two about helping people learn and grow!
