RÉSUMÉ

MOHIT SANTRAM   UX PRODUCT DESIGN MANAGER

I manage all UX Development at FlightSafety, including two designers coordinating with over fifteen developers. I have helped shepherd the team to a focused design ethos and helped to reduce inconsistent practices. Leveraging numerous full-time and contract projects, I am skilled and experienced in User Experience, Interaction Design, Product Development. As a former developer myself, I strive to bridge developers’ needs with the simplicity offered through a consistent design language. I work well with colleagues, encourage and promote collaboration, and inspire fellow teammates to be mindful of the user in our work.
