Head of Product Management

İşte Oyun

I was acting as a Product Hacker in the context of "Lean". A Product Hacker is "someone who can happily co-exist between the technology, innovation and business worlds." The main idea of the role is continuously eliminating the "waste" and producing "value". The role's routine includes;

  • Consulting with clients to understand their business and the challenges they face
  • Collaborating with colleagues across different disciplines to define solutions for clients
  • Experimenting with some cool new tech that excites you
  • Speaking at an event, sharing the goodness you create with the wider world
  • Working with a pitch team, brainstorming a creative approach to a new digital brief
  • Hosting a workshop for a client, uncovering new business needs and opportunities
  • Getting involved in important team decisions around finances, policy and culture
