Being a part of Amazon’s Lab126 FireTV 1’s earliest concept launch was one of Avinash’s defining professional experiences.

“It gave me a chance to team up with some fantastic people to build the product,” he says, an approach which he has brought into his current position. “Working with such a talented set of people is the best part of working at Playground. The diverse range of projects you get to work on is an added benefit.”

Avinash characterizes his work philosophy as having a “willingness to fail, long term willingness to be misunderstood, and being patient for a long time.”

He also brings a sense of detail to that context of enduring persistence.

“I believe (and hope) I will be able to add more relevant specifics to the grand visions of our entrepreneurs,” he says, “and focus on the hard problems from the beginning which will make the development process less complicated and more enjoyable.”
