Defining the future of mobility as a Product Designer at Ola Electric.
Hi, I am Arijit, an engineer turned designer, currently working as a Product Designer at Ola (ANI Technologies Pvt. Ltd.), India's leading ride-sharing company. With the vision to redefine mobility for billions, I'm designing new automotive experiences for our ride partners under Ola's Mission: Electric. I was also responsible for redesigning various customer & driver experiences for Ola Play, world's first connected car platform for ride-sharing.
I pursued my Masters (M.Des) in Interaction Design from National Institute of Design, India, during which I spent a winter semester at the Industrial Design Dept. at Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin, Germany, as an international exchange student exploring and learning new design cultures at a truly global platform, besides sustaining at sub zero temperatures. I previously completed an insightful, 6 months long, UX Design internship with Microsoft India R&D Pvt. Ltd. at MSIDC, Hyderabad.
With 5 years of cumulative experience in the digital industry, I like to design for the new world where technology, ecology and human psychology are becoming the key aspects and the challenge is to make every experience more natural, pleasant and efficient. With an eye for attention to detail, I take keen interest in UX research, product strategies, information architecture, microcopy, motion design, and the challenges of sustainable and inclusive design. An appetite for knowledge and information has always motivated me to learn and explore more. My belief for Knowledge is Power drives my interest in a diversity of subjects and that encouraged me into writing and sharing my experiences on my Medium portal.
I love to cook, travel and explore new places, new cultures, new food, and natürlich I am pretty active on Instagram but on weekends and occasionally on mid-week nights (since we are here to stay in the UEFA Champions League), I'm all glued to the screen fist pumping for Liverpool FC. A sense of belonging and acceptance drives my passion and emotions as an avid sports buff.
