Technical Product Manager, Integrate

I have worked many years as a Software Engineer and in the last few years moved into leadership/management. I have always been passionate about product, believing an engineer is only as good as the product they are building. That fueled a pivot to product management as a Technical Product Manager at Integrate. 

 

Get to know Jacob

How do you think design impacts your everyday life? The community?
Design is a silent hero. When things are designed well everything is better, but you often don’t notice design is the reason why. Your car is more enjoyable if it is designed well, you spend less time being frustrated over technology that is designed well, things bring you more joy. However, when things are designed badly it is glaring obvious. For that reason, we should be thankful for designers everywhere that care.

If you hadn’t ended up in the career you are in, what do you think you’d be doing?
Digging holes. I’m oddly attracted to digging holes.
