Building powerful products starts with building brilliant product teams. And when you are growing rapidly and need to move at pace, that’s not an easy feat.

Not only do you need to hire A-players, get them onboarded, communicate the vision, define your team structures, and implement the right processes and systems, you need to do it all whilst making sure delivery stays consistent, and without sacrificing the culture you’ve worked so hard to build. Not to mention keeping the board on board throughout the journey…

Join us on from 10am on Thursday 16 June for the latest edition of Byte Breakfast, our online panel event looking at trends and themes in digital product. In collaboration with Iris, our product talent acquisition consultancy, we’ll be chatting to product leaders about the challenges of scaling product teams, looking at some of the battles won and lessons learned along the way.

Melanie enjoys working with her team to understand users and spot new opportunities and problems to solve.
