Hi there, I’m
Priyank Sharma

I’m an award-winning design leader having over 15 years of experience in the design industry. In my previous roles, I held senior leadership positions where I successfully led teams of designers to create world-class products and experiences.

MX Player

I’m credited for the successes of Hotstar and MX Player

In recent years, I have been heavily involved in designing ground-breaking products, scaling design teams and building cultures. Few other big brands that I had the opportunity to work with early on in my career include Yahoo!, Sony and Vodafone.

Career Highlights


I joined Hotstar as a founding designer, where I designed the product experience across a diverse array of platforms, such as Android, iOS, Web, Roku, Apple TV and Fire TV; it helped pave the way for many other OTT platforms in the country.

Owing to the success of the product, I ended up heading the product and graphic design teams responsible for most of the company’s significant feature releases.

MX Player

I was formally recruited to MX Player as their global head of design. My first major assignment was regarded as a breakthrough for MX Player when it moved from only being a video player to a full-fledged entertainment platform.

I overlooked a strong 50-member design team across Product, Graphics and Games in India and China.
