Vinayak Vedantam

Product Manager @ Meta


I founded my first start-up in 2014, built a team of 15 employees, and grew our messaging app, Drizzle SMS (an SMS app that paid users to text), to 10K daily active users. In order to further hone my product skills, I became a product manager at Zynga where I learned how to think about feature development, implement proper analytics, and execute on the product lifecycle. I now work as a PM at Meta in charge of removing bad actors and reducing post-purchase buyer harm in Meta’s commerce platforms – a high priority, high visibility area for the company. My goal is to continue to learn how to solve bigger and bigger problems and to put those skills to use in ways that are socially good.


I am an avid hobbyist and love learning how things work. I play the flute, guitar, and piano (and in a pinch might be able to brush off some tuba skills). I play LOTS of video games, tinker with DIY projects, and automate my smart home. When I’m not at home, I can be found rock climbing, taking photos, and hiking with my dog Clarence.
