Last year I moved to Boston and began my search for a job in product management. Boston Product made it easy to get in touch with smart people at interesting companies, stay in touch with product trends and ask for feedback on projects.
Connect with other PMs
Product managers should always be seeking new perspectives. What better way than to learn from your peers at other companies?
Find a job
We’ve got the area’s best pool of product talent. If you’re looking to hire or find a new role, start with our jobs board and Slack channel.
We want to elevate great product managers. That means giving them the skills they need and the recognition they deserve.
I attended a Boston Product breakfast at Spotify’s Davis Square office and then helped hosted one at our own Pivotal Boston office. I found the conversations at both breakfast gatherings very intellectually stimulating. This is a very diverse and intelligent group.
There are PM groups and meetups in New York, but Boston Product has been the best in terms of the kindness and intelligence of the community and the quality of discussion. The discussion is very hands-on and tactical.
Boston Product has created a safe space where you can reach out and ask for help with your toughest problems and deepest insecurities. Not only is there no judgement, but people will go out of their way to tailor advice to your situation.
Boston Product does a great job bringing together the active and talented product community in Boston. I always learn something at the events and value the quality of the discussion and insights from everyone.
Boston Product is one of the first things I tell people about who are interested in getting into/advancing in Product. Its my go-to for filling roles and the breakfasts are consistently helpful in progressing my craft.
Boston Product is unique in that it’s made up exclusively of frontline product managers. It’s great to connect and collaborate with people who are actually doing the job every day.
We created Boston Product to help elevate the practice of product management in Boston so our city can thrive.
Great PMs are difference-makers at a company, and those companies go on to make hires, attract capital, spin-off talent, and fuel economic growth.
Product management is a constantly evolving discipline with very little formal education. We believe in ongoing professional development by staying connected to the changing perspectives within the community.
SOME OF OUR COMMUNITY COMPANIES
Product managers are said to have strong opinions, weakly held. In this series, we pit PMs against each other in a tournament-style debate. The twist: they don’t know which side of the argument they’ll have to take until the moment the round begins. See a recap of Product Debaters 3.
Our longest running event, Product Breakfast is a monthly session bringing together diverse perspectives within our community to discuss the challenges facing product managers in a small group forum.
