Hi! I'm Fil Zembowicz.
I'm interested in a great many things: product design, chemistry, networks, math, programming, and how people in different cultures interact with the world around them. I believe that over-specialization should be avoided as much as possible, and I try to learn from as many perspectives as possible. I'm happiest making things that make things, especially tools that help us communicate or assist in understanding the complicated relationships between the forces that shape our world.
Building Formsort, a platform for forms, onboardings, and more, so that everyone can use the best principles in form design without having to reinvent the wheel.
Traveling, thinking, and tinkering.
Started Better Mortgage
At Better Mortgage, I was head of product. I built the technology foundation for a mortgage bank platform for consumers, bank staff, and investors, in a highly regulated and operationally-complicated field. As a founding team member, I was involved in everything from fundraising to fixing bugs.
On the Maps team, as an APM, I rebuilt the business reviewing experience and developed tools to reduce spam.
Moved to NYC
After graduation, the diversity of thought and activity in New York was particularly appealing.
Enrolled at Harvard
I studied chemistry and computer science at Harvard. I was involved in teaching computer science, biology research, and digital projects ranging from neurology to political science.
