My Story

Hello, I'm Rahul Jain, designer at Google

I’m a product designer from India currently working on Google/Youtube ad tools. Before this, I worked on Stadia, solving complex design problems around game streaming. I graduated with a masters in human-computer interaction from Indiana University and hold a bachelors in electronics engineering.

The shift in my career happened when I was working on a government project and saw how design thinking can solve real-world challenges at scale. In my journey in design, I’ve had the opportunity to work in both startup and enterprise environments on projects related to healthcare, education, mobility, and gaming.

Coming from a background in both engineering and design, I love connecting the dots between business goals, technical constraints and user satisfaction. I’m passionate about system design, social justice, and environmental causes. In my free time, I enjoy coming of age stories, exploring new cuisines, and looking for last minute adventures.
