Connecting business, strategy and design with technology, content and operations.

Who, what and why

Engage Digital is Stefan Ruissen. I’m an experienced digital director and product manager with a strong background in digital, online marketing communication and content creation.

I help brands and organisations design, develop and implement their digital products and services by connecting business, strategy and design with technology, content and operations.

I enjoy tackling complex digital challenges to create products and services that users love, are technically feasible and bring value to the organisation.


To deliver successful digital experiences, I believe it’s crucial to adopt a human centered design approach, build strong stakeholder relations, and foster autonomous, cross-functional teams while keeping tabs on the project and business side of things.
