About Gautam

I'm a product development enthusiast with 9 years' experience converting ideas into real products in the digital industry. I'm passionate about GETTING STARTED and SAVING WASTED TIME & MONEY for enterprises, partners, entrepreneurs; and I've spent the last 9 years helping customers grow their products from ideas to reality through product design, strategy, and development.

I like to solve problems. Throughout my career, I have been driven by my passion and curiosity to find answers to the most pressing questions. Whether it's identifying what song is being played on your phone or making vital tasks performed on a smartphone easier through a Bluetooth button, I've been able to uncover pain points and find strategic solutions for more than 15 digital products.

I believe in getting started and doing meaningful work at the product development. Ways I do it are by design, prototype, and testing with customers; I remove messy and unstructured discussions. I just happen to do Design Sprints.

I enjoy traveling, reading, facilitating Design Sprints, and much more. So if you have anything you feel I can help with, or useful learning and reading stuff, feel free to contact me: gautam@sprintcube.com
