JAM 2016 CONFERENCE: DOES YOUR STARTUP HAVE A PRODUCT MANAGER?

16 October 2016
Building a product that people want to use repeatedly is very hard. Unfortunately, we often see early stage technology startups that have yet to give serious thought to hiring a designated product manager. It’s a collaborative role that brings together user experience, business and technology, and has evolved to include analytics, managing releases, but also writing agile stories and creating wireframes. All while keeping the eye on what’s best for the product. This November, Jam Conference will have it’s second edition. If you want to learn about product management from some of the best stories in 2016 – Deliveroo, Monzo, Intercom, Facebook – and to find out how these companies go about building groundbreaking products, we encourage you attend this conference. “These are the questions we asked ourselves two years ago when we were working together in an ad tech startup” explains Mathilde Leo, one of the co-founders of JAM. “We were building a complex product, and not being hugely experienced, we learned through trial and error. We also often wondered how the products we use every day get built and wanted to learn from others’ experiences”. JAM is a 1-day event which will reveal the stories behind the products you know and love. Last year’s inaugural conferencebrought together 200 people from the tech startup scene, a mix of founders, product and design people, developers and everything in between. JAM 2016 will take place on Friday, 4 November at Oval Space, Bethnal Green. “We’ve secured an impressive lineup from top companies including Deliveroo, Monzo, Intercom, Lyst, Facebook to name just a few, and have received support from the event from Founders Factory, Deliveroo, Wizeline and Twilio.”
