About us

Product Design @ Orange Silicon Valley

Product Design at Orange Silicon Valley is a team in San Francisco that educates leaders on how to build products that are useful, intuitive, and ultimately delight customers. We empower product teams with new tools, methodologies, and frameworks to make sure they are building the right thing, and they are building it right.

We believe that learning by doing is critical. We do so by exploring business and market opportunities through a human-centric lens: we run product discovery, customer development, and test our solutions through an iterative process that includes ideation, prototyping, and experimentation.
