Megan is the VP of product at Hotjar, where she leads its design, data, and product teams. She has lived and led product teams in San Francisco, Brazil, Spain, and in fully distributed environments on a mix of B2C and B2B products at Skyscanner, Microsoft, N26, and a few early-stage startups. Megan has earned her stripes in building products in a range of contexts – from validating early demand through prototypes at a Series-A startup in pursuit of its first 100 customers, to experimenting at scale on 100million MAU products. And likewise on the qualitative side – she has designed and run complex, multi-continental user research studies, and today you’ll still find her as scrappy as ever, reaching out to target customers on LinkedIn so she can personally understand their workflows and biggest sources of frustration. One of the most challenging aspects of Megan’s transition from Product Manager to Product Leader was the ability to find and relate to modern examples of real-world, foundational product work (think product principles, lightweight quarterly planning processes, concrete approaches to vision and strategy, etc.). In recognition of this whitespace, Megan is now open-sourcing much of her work at Hotjar to make it easier for other Product Managers and Product Leaders to equip their teams with the artifacts they need to move fast and stay aligned.

I’m Nina – an experienced Product Manager dedicated to delivering mission-focused products to my users. I’m currently a PM at Deloitte Digital where I serve a variety of users across industries and technologies – and I love what I do!
I have direct experience building mobile, web and CMS products from discovery to launch across both B2B and B2C markets. When I first entered the field of product management, I didn’t have much guidance on product outside my organization. I’ve since prioritized time beyond my nine-to-five to discover best practices in product research, design and development.
In addition to my work as a PM, I also write about product methodology and maintain a book review blog. I’m eager to connect with others early in their journey and offer tips and tricks useful for launching a career in product. Let’s chat!
