Product Management

My background as a PM

I have been passionately building tech products in Istanbul and in Paris for the past 8 years. I've worked at many different startups: seed stage & mature, local & international, marketplace, e-commerce and media. I've been described by my managers and colleagues as quick to gain trust, unafraid to ask questions and determined to aim for the moon.

As an engineer & analyst, I speak the languages of all teams across the company (tech, design, marketing, finance, operation) and am focused on business growth. As an empath & mindfulness teacher, I build products by finding a deep empathy with users and trust between teammates. As a maker & creative, I thrive when working with constraints. My personality type is Mediator (INFP) and my top 5 Clifton Strengths are Belief, Relator, Ideation, Significance, Command.

Some of my most defining projects were expanding products to Russian & Arabic speaking markets, launching a full suite online grocery in 4 months, creating B2B lines within B2C companies, product segmentation, gamification and empowerment of tech teams.
