Lean, design thinking approach to growing products. I believe in clean, white-hat techniques that can fetch you tremendous growth.
How do you design and build products in ways that organically acquire and grow users, revenue and profits? How do you use existing and new levers?
It was great talking to Jay about the issues with our website ranking. He had few suggestions and I am implementing those
Arun is the design soul of SlideShare. He designed or redesigned every page that is on the current site, including the html. His designs are oriented towards achieving business results, and he's very oriented towards metrics and analytics as a basis for judging the effectiveness of design 10/10, would hire again.
Arun has been part of the SlideShare team since 2008. He has served in many capacities - designer, front-end developer, and manager. He knows the SlideShare business inside out and has been a huge part of SlideShare's success. Arun knows how to get things done, and would be an asset to any organization. I highly recommend him.
Arun is very developer-friendly; he'd immediately grasped the idea of hquery & was iterating on designs, collaborating with devs through svn in no time. He was the proponent of semantic markup in SlideShare, responsible for the SEO friendly & meaningful markup the site enjoys today.
