Hi! I’m Nishant Gadihoke. I’m a user experience engineer based out of New Delhi, India. That essentially means that I can design meaningful products and build them using code.
With over 3 years of experience in the field while working with 10+ startups as a consultant, I have an eye for finding elegant ways to solve complex problems. Over the years, I have realised that there is no single secret recipe for building great products; it is instead a path of experimentation and leveraging your strengths to create value for people. This personal philosophy is something I like to apply to everything I do.
I’m currently running an award-winning accessibility technology company, Oswald Labs as co-founder and CTO. At Oswald Labs, our mission is to build new technologies that help people grow, and do it in a manner promoting accessibility and equality.
Having been brought up all over India, I believe that my exposure to various cultures and interaction with people from all walks of life helps me empathise better with the users I design for.
I enjoy the company of animals and run an NGO called the Street Animals Welfare Society out of New Delhi where we help treat wounded stray animals (there are a lot in India!) and try and give all beings a better standard of living.
Currently, I study Computer Science and Design at IIIT Delhi where I’m conducting independent research in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. Whenever I commute, I spend my time listening to audiobooks and podcasts. Click here to find out what I’m currently reading.
I’m extremely honoured to have my work recognised by organisations around the world. Recently, I featured in the Forbes 30 Under 30 for Asia 2018! You can find a list of selected articles about my work by clicking on this link.
If you think that I would be a good fit to work with or if you’re interested in something I contributed to, you can reach out to me via the contact page of this website.
