- Hands-on. You can build basic wireframes for logical flows on your own and develop a product from conception to completion.
- Great communication skills. Product managers are the glue that make software startups work - you’ve worked in this role before and relish it. Asking questions, listening, facilitating and arbitrating discussions, and presenting ideas to groups large and small are all things you are good at.
