Defining the future of mobility as a Product Designer at Ola Electric.
Hi, I am Arijit, currently working as a Product Designer at Ola Electric Mobility Pvt. Ltd. With the vision to redefine mobility for billions and make electric mobility convenient, dependable, and affordable, I'm designing system, services & digital UX components for an e-mobility ecosystem. During my spell with OlaCabs (ANI Technologies Pvt. Ltd.), I was responsible for designing various in-car driver and customer 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. Previously, I completed an insightful, 6 months long, UX Design internship with Microsoft India R&D Pvt. Ltd. at MSIDC, Hyderabad.
With 6.5 years of cumulative experience in the industry across software and UX, 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, usability analysis, 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 Medium and on my travel blog Drifting Meridians. My stories have featured in community blogs like UX Planet, Prototypr, Muzli & Marvelapp.
I love to play badminton, 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.
