PM's are responsible for defining the product vision and strategy, ensuring that the product meets customer needs, and maximizing the product's value to the business. To put it simply, they are a critical liaison between the engineering team and the customers who use our products.
During this roundtable discussion, Lilia Gutnik, Group Product Manager @ Google will share insights and best practices to hire a rockstar PM. This is a great space to learn more about PMs even if you aren't in a position to hire right now.
A little bit more about our host, Lilia:
Lilia has been thinking about, designing, and shipping data-driven products for enterprise customers for more than 15 years. Lilia is a Group Product Manager at Google, leading a team of PM’s across a portfolio of product experiences spanning enterprise and consumer, mobile/web/watch/API, at the scale of close to a billion monthly active user with Google Contacts. Before Google, she was in product at Microsoft, various unsuccessful startups, and experienced the wild ride of hyper growth and IPO with PagerDuty.
She’s passionate about getting stuff done, helping people be the best versions of themselves, guiding and growing product managers through the exciting chaos of hypergrowth, and helping everyone (customers, product managers, engineers) learn from data to make decisions and solve problems.
In her spare time, Lilia explores the Bay Area with her toddler, coaches startup executives in public speaking, volunteers for Code2040, and watches any movie Keanu Reeves is in.
