Salil Malkan
Product Designer & Engineer
San Francisco, CA
I’m a product designer with over 10 years of experience working on technology teams. I specialize in user experience & interface design for native mobile and responsive web apps, though I pride myself in being able to jump in where the team needs from research to prototyping.

I’ve led a range of design projects across many industries including publishing, real estate, and social. I’m currently working as a product designer at The Athletic where I get to experience the joy of working in sports. Previously, I was the founding product designer at Zeus Living, a product designer at Scribd, and a mobile engineer in few smaller startups before that.

Schedule time with me on ADPList if you are curious to learn more about any of the above or if you just want to hang.
Professional Values
Thanks to the fine folks at Design Department, I got a chance to articulate my values. I return to them anytime I feel a bit confused about how I should act or what to do next.
Act with kindness
People should always come first. Our projects will fade away into the archives in a few years at most, but our relationships live forever.
Work inclusively
I find that I can always learn from the folks around me. The more I can include others in what I do, the better the work can be for it.

Be helpful
There’s going to be problems in every direction you look. No matter how small or large a contribution I can make, I’m happy to help make those around me successful.
