Posts by Arvind Mishra, Senior Director, Product

Arvind wakes up each morning getting his face licked by his yellow lab, Sumi, and having his son, Taj, "hop on Pop" (that's a Dr. Seuss reference for those in the know). His wife, Kim, has humored him as he pursued his passion of working on products that people use everyday - first at Microsoft, where he worked on three separate versions of Windows, and now at eHarmony, where he heads the global Product Management team. Arvind and his team are responsible for designing and executing brand new features for the site as well as fixing on-going issues that crop up. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking really anything from an Emeril Lagasse or Bobby Flay cookbook and playing Xbox Kinect.
