#WeAreArity: Lukas Ostrander
When Mom asks me what it is that I do again, I say…
At Arity, I get to help design applications that make transportation safer and smarter. We focus on how the app looks, feels, and works, trying to create the best overall experience for the user. We get to come up with ideas, test those ideas by showing them to others, and then refine those ideas based on the feedback we collect.
In your own words, what is Arity?
Arity is a technology company founded by Allstate that is working to make transportation safer, smarter, and more useful for everyone! It is a great environment, great culture, and filled with great people!
My favorite mode of transportation is…
I take the train every day and I love it! Being able to listen to podcasts and not focus on driving makes for a great commute.
On a Saturday afternoon, you can find me…
I’m working on my master’s right now, so sadly the answer might be studying. Other than that, you would probably find me grabbing food with friends or hanging out with my wife and my dog Fiesta.
If you could volunteer for any cause, what would it be? Why?
Every year in November I grow out a mustache to support Movember. Great cause and great excuse to sport a stache!
Most people don’t know I…
Took Czech for my foreign language in college (Na zdraví!)
The theme song of my life is…
Hmm…Maybe the Ghostbusters theme?
Would you get in a self-driving car? Why or why not?
Of course! I would love the chance to take a driverless ride, and I think it will be a common mode of transportation before long.
Favorite innovation pioneer?
I’ll go old school and answer Nikola Tesla.
