Otta's take on zeroheight

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

High-quality UX for websites and apps is no longer a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have if a company is to succeed. However scaling the impact of UX teams is not simple, and in recent years teams have turned to DesignOps platforms to help them.

zeroheight was founded in 2015 to bring unique design systems to any company. It believes the way to do this is with clear, accurate, and collaborative documentation, which the zeroheight tool enables its customers to build in a matter of hours. It allows the creation of a central hub for designers, engineers, and product and marketing teams to put all things design in one place.

The company counts several Fortune 500 companies like Adobe and United Airlines as customers among its 1,300+ customer base. zeroheight is expanding from London to the San Francisco/Bay Area, and growing the team across the board. Its focus so far has been on UX documentation, but it is now exploring other areas such as closing the gap between design and development.
