Jonathan Lupo

VP of Experience Design at EPAM Systems



For 20 years, I've taken a design-led, human centered approach to solving problems for people and businesses. As a user experience executive and entrepreneur, I co-founded a company, Empathy Lab, that focused on the creation of new products and services for clients, using a design thinking toolkit to gain deep insights about how their customers engaged with offerings in their Brand ecosystems.


Empathy Lab was acquired by EPAM in 2012, and I've spent the past six years as EPAM's VP of Design, in San Francisco. In the Bay Area, I've built a world class team of strategic and immersive experience designers, who unpack complex business and consumer challenges, gain deep quantitative and qualitative insights, and engage in agile, iterative product development programs with large, full stack, engineering teams. I am also the strategic lead for EPAM's Immersive Technology (AR/VR) competency center.
