Thaniya loves the creativity and dedication that went into creating the TED app for the iPhone, iPad, and Android. When figuring out how to create the app, her team didn’t just replicate a version of the TED website—they actually spent a lot of time understanding how people used each of the three devices and then tailored their products to provide a phenomenal user experience on every one.
What Thaniya Does
Product Development Director
As a late bird, Thaniya comes into the office around 10 AM, but stays late into the evening masterminding ways to improve TED’s digital presence. She spends much of her day in meetings where she updates TED on ongoing projects, and helps shape digital strategies for different departments. Later, Thaniya works with developers to translate all that brainstorming into great TED products.
