Product Management at Algorand is a mix of strategy, market research, evangelism, grinding with the development teams, and doing whatever needs to be done to get results. All that with technology that has the potential to fundamentally shift the way value is created and exchanged across the world.
We value everyone and take care of them well -- especially during the pandemic. It could have been difficult to collaborate and communicate in such a scenario, but Algorand has been very supportive. Support in terms of technology, office supplies, sending things to homes, snacks, many accommodations -- these many small, seemingly insignificant things go a long way.
Given the nature of our profession, it is easy to get comfortable with the job but also be stressed. At Algorand, it is the opposite. I am not comfortable, I am constantly pushed beyond my comfort zone, because I am doing new things and learning new technologies all the time. But I am not stressed, you see. Algorand is unique, especially for a startup, because it has a culture that promotes professional growth, without stressing you out.
The nature of my role means that I get to work cross-functionally with team members in different departments and learn something new each day.
