Hiring

Great products start with great people.

I help companies make great product hires, whether it means finding their founding product manager, scaling an existing team, or bringing in the right senior Product executive.

I partner with the hiring manager and interview team to ensure A+ talent is hired each time. This usually includes:

  • Identifying company needs, optimizing job posts, determining minimum qualifications and required experience and expertise
  • Organizing the end-to-end hiring process, identifying important questions to ask, dividing responsibilities across the team, ensuring process consistency
  • Creating challenging homework assignments, evaluating candidate responses
  • Filtering resumes, directly interviewing candidates, identifying and following up on yellow and red flags
  • Managing candidate debriefs, ensuring a high bar is maintained, selling the right candidate, and even onboarding

While I am very well-connected, particularly in the DC metro area, my focus is on making the right hire from the available candidates, rather than sourcing candidates to add to the pipeline.
