Nina Kalwar

Product Manager at Stealth Startup

Area of Expertise: Product

Career Level: Mid

Ask Me About: Books, Career Management, Product Fundamentals, Interview Prep

I’m Nina — an experienced Product Manager dedicated to delivering mission-focused products to my users. I’m currently a PM at an early-stage stealth startup where I serve a variety of users across a few products — 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!

Currently a Senior UX Researcher at Etsy, where I help our native app teams ground their decision-making in user insights. Before Etsy, I was a UX Researcher at Morgan Stanley and Meetup.

I am now eager to help promising researchers and designers succeed in this field, from finding that First Job to thriving in your role. Outside of work, I spend my time taking boxing classes, cooking subpar meals, and consuming content on the Internet. In my past life, I was a hip hop and contemporary dancer, as well as an avid amateur artist.
