Abhishek Nandakumar

I'm presently at Stripe, where I head the Payments+Connect product design organization — a team of managers and makers, crafting the bits and atoms powering the internet's economy.

Before Stripe, I spent a number of years at Facebook, where I led teams designing the Oculus VR operating system, and led many commerce initiatives including Instagram Shopping and the Facebook Payments Platform, enabling millions of transactions powered across Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp.

Before that, I led design and product strategy at Yahoo, Amazon Lab126 and Telenav.
