I transitioned into product from community management. When we started to grow our product team, Boston Product was the first place I looked, and less than two months later, Mitch joined us.
If you’re looking to make a product hire, you want to start with the Boston Product community. Listings are auto-posted to our dedicated jobs channel in Slack and we’ll also promote the job on our social accounts.
- Postings are shared to our private Slack workspace with over 800 members
- The majority of our members have at least 2 years of product experience
- Members start their next job search with Boston Product
Being able to form relationships with others in the Boston product community was invaluable during my search for a product role. I saw a post come through the slack channel and was able to hear first hand feedback about how the company was, what their values were, and determine whether the job would be the right fit. So far, I’m 6 months into the role and loving it!
I saw a job listing on the community Slack channel and reached out to the hiring manager. We connected at Unbox in 2018, and that was a great way for us both to acknowledge that we took product management seriously and had a lot of shared opinions about the role.
