Intuition, analytics, and research are the three pillars that you should rely on when you make a product decision according to product leader Ravi Mehta. 

We had a chance to sit down and go in-depth with Ravi Mehta, former chief product officer at Tinder, and several other top tech companies including Facebook and Microsoft. 

In this conversation, we talk about his journey as a product manager, his learnings from his days at Facebook, TripAdvisor, and later Tinder. 

We also took on questions like:

⚡️ What's the right time for a startup to hire a product manager?

⚡️What do peak product managers look like? 

⚡️How do you build products for Gen Z? 

⚡️Making startups antifragile. 

...And much more. Listen in.
