Biography

Sarah Chaudary

Product Design Engineer

Using computer-assisted drawing software and 3D printers, Sarah Chaudary transforms startups’ napkin doodles into products.

“There's no better feeling than working on a product, and then going out and seeing it in the shop, or seeing it in somebody's hand,” says Sarah, a Playground Product Design Engineer. “I think that's the most exciting part of product design and product development.”

Prior to joining Playground, Sarah worked with Motorola’s engineering team on the brand’s first Android phone, the Cliq for T-Mobile, and with Amazon’s Lab126 team on the Kindle Voyage. Sarah then joined New York-based startup Quirky which she says “democratized design.” At Quirky, she worked on Internet of Things devices and other consumer electronics.

At Playground, Sarah loves talking with the startups about their product ideas.

“They’re basically looking to us to give them advice and product development work,” she says. And “we're looking at them to give us their vision and product definition.”
