Product, Not Process
Wondering what it is that hiring managers are looking for? Well, this one has a pretty clear answer: product, not process. If you’ve been too hung up on roadmapping and writing specs, think again. Good PMs are great doers, but they’re much more well-rounded than that. Are you a Vitruvian? Looks like Steffan Howey is hiring.
Sometimes I think that if two technologies came out in reverse order, we’d still hail the latter entrant.
“Email starts to replace Slack, improves worker productivity by 63%!”
“Uber except you keep the car in your garage and it’s a zero-minute wait and there’s no small talk.”

Many PMs are working on a technology that they hope will disrupt the way that things work today. But this made me think: what if we reverse engineer the next product we’re building? Not to be the “next thing,” but to be two steps ahead. I’m not sure exactly what that looks like yet, but sometimes opposites day can make more sense.

Something of an Occam’s razor moment here. Sometimes all you need is a bigger Post-it.
Finding a babysitter can be a nightmare, as many parents know. But what if you could help build the product that makes all that easier? This position at Sittercity in Chicago is a chance to become the hero of parents everywhere, and to really learn something about customer empathy.
