In these podcast interviews, you’ve probably heard me talk about my background in recruiting. I ran a search firm called Dissero and product management was a core area of specialty. Thus, I was really excited to interview Nate, as he is one of the top product leaders in the tech industry and it was an opportunity to really geek out on the topic of product management. We discuss lots of great topics related to this field like how to determine if a career in product management is right for you, what are the key traits for a strong product manager, and what a day in the life of a product leader looks like. In this episode of our podcast, we also cover: * Nate’s appointment to the Board of Directors at Cockroach Labs and how this seems to be a growing trend of having more operating *. * executives on the board at companies. * A journey through his career including his decision to attend business school at MIT Sloan and being part of the team that won the famous MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition. * How Nate groomed his career into a product management leadership role at a startup. * All the details on Cockroach Labs and its cloud-native, distributed SQL database. * And so much more.
