Member looking for work:
I’m searching for my next team in the Portland metro area or fully remote. In my 6 years of Product Marketing, I’ve honed my product/market fit, market research, customer discovery, and pricing skills. Ideal titles may be Product Manager, Product Owner, Product Analyst, Business Analyst, or Product Marketing Manager. I want to work with SMBs (< 200 employees) and startups seeking an acquisition as their exit within 2-4 year time horizon.
I’d like to join an organization that offers a SaaS product or hardware component for the personal computing ecosystem. My prior experiences in Wi-Fi networking, computer storage, printers, and computer hardware round out my experiences in new product development in IoT, autonomous/electric vehicles, or cloud computing.
