    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Quietly (Vancouver, BC).

    Interview

    Coffee and chat with CEO and CIO
    Very casual
    Showed me their renovated office-in-a-townhome setup. Quite cool

    After interview, I got the vibe that they really wanted a super rockstar unicorn product manager - one who could drive a Development team, as well as manage day-to-day and strategic/visionary product management tasks. I fit that mold fine and would have happily taken the challenge.

    What threw me off was that they also wanted someone who was seasoned in product marketing management as well. Developing GTM strategies, executing them, driving marketing campaigns, etc ... while I was up for the challenge to learn, it's WAY too much to ask of for 1 person to do 3 total functions, and to do it well. They were only offering market rate for a senior product manager too.

    In the end, I did not get an offer, but I'm glad I didn't. Would have been a privilege though to be mentored by one of the founders of Hootsuite.
