I am Ankit Daftery
I currently work as a Product Manager for Offline Payments and Merchant Experience at PhonePe
I enjoy building products, experiences and devices that ease interactions and bring convenience.
When I am not working, I am reading finance, psychology and sci-fi / learning Mandarin / building glowing orbs of light.
I ponder why people, organizations and markets behave the way they do.
