More about me

Skillset

With experience and skills in all aspects of product management, I can own the complete lifecycle of the product right from problem discovery to launch and then iterating based on customer feedback.

Customer Discovery

I can talk to customers, perform user research, understand the needs and pain points, synthesize qualitative information to build new use cases, identify new user personas.

User Experience

I am experienced at optimizing user conversion funnels, building low and high fidelity prototypes, copywriting, and conducting design reviews.

Roadmap Prioritization

At my previous role, I developed the product vision and strategy which led to acquisition of 240 enterprise customers within 2 years.

Pricing Strategy

I can develop a pricing and product positioning strategy for different stages of product. During my tenure as PM, I helped grow the ARPU by 35% in 1 year.

Data Analysis

By looking at quantitative data and usage patterns, I can help you uncover insights to improve product adoption and generate new streams of revenue.

Leadership

I believe in pushing the best idea forward. There is no 'I' when you are building a great product.

MY PROJECTS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Things that have made me proud in the last 7 years..

Google Launchpad Accelerator

In 2018, I was one of the two people who were shortlisted to travel to San Francisco, USA to represent SocialCops at a global platform. I worked with co-founders and product managers from companies across the globe which gave me a good perspective into different problems that companies are trying to solve. This was the point of inflection in my career that set me on the path of product management.

Project Arrow Link

Product Dissections - A Youtube Channel

Product Dissections is Youtube channel where I teardown different aspects of the user experience of a product from the perspective of a new user. From my personal experience as a product manager and a UX designer, I find this as a great way for anyone who is involved in the realm of building products to understand the mindset of their users. Videos on this channel shed light on how a new user might think and act while they are using the product. The experience that the product offers during this time can make or break the decision of whether the users will continue using their product or not. I post new videos every week! 

Project Arrow Link

Guest Speaker on Episode #3 of Prodcast

In this episode, I talk about how PMs often fall into the trap of being the "omniscient" product manager. They know their products inside and out, and the in-depth product knowledge can often disconnect them from the experience of first-time users. To avoid this disconnect, PMs must unlearn their product with each new feature.

Project Arrow Link

Pradhan Mantri Ujjawala Yojana

I led the development and launch of the data collection Android application that powered the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana. This project was in partnership with the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas to bring clean cooking fuel to 80 million women below the poverty line in just 4 years.
