Priyank Sharma (born 7 September 1985) is an award-winning Design Leader who’s credited for the successes of Hotstar and MX Player – few of the biggest products to come out of India. In his previous roles, he held senior leadership positions where he successfully led teams of designers to create world-class products and experiences. In recent years, he has been heavily involved in designing ground-breaking products, scaling design teams and building cultures. Few other big brands that he had the opportunity to work with early on in his career include Yahoo!, Sony and Vodafone.

Early Life[edit]

Priyank Sharma grew up in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. His father is an accountant, and his mother is a homemaker. Raised in Chembur, Priyank completed his Class X at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour High School and completed Class XII from Guru Nanak Khalsa College of Arts, Science & Commerce.

He was passionate about design from a very early age and often pursued freelance stints while at school and at college. He briefly considered a career in architecture at the Dr. D. Y. Patil College of Architecture in Navi Mumbai; however, he soon felt disinterested and felt the whole process of architectural design off-putting. Due to a lack of digital design courses at that time, he decided to pursue graduation and earned his Bachelor of Science degree from SunRise University.



He joined Hotstar as a founding designer, where he designed the product experience across a diverse array of platforms, such as Android, iOS, Web, Roku, Apple TV and Fire TV; it helped pave the way for many other OTT platforms in the country.

Owing to the success of the product, he ended up heading the product and graphic design teams responsible for most of the company’s significant feature releases.

MX Player[edit]

He was formally recruited to MX Player as their global head of design. His first major assignment was regarded as a breakthrough for MX Player when it moved from only being a video player to a full-fledged entertainment platform.

He overlooked a strong 50-member design team across Product, Graphics and Games in India and China.
