// Mixpanel implementation The Mentoring Club - Abhishek Jaiswal

I am a problem solver by training (Computer science) and found my calling in Product management and helping others by any possible means.

While working as a senior product developer who owned product success with his PO, I was itching for a customer facing role and after rigorous preparation I found my way into a a full-time product management role at Zimplistic, an IoT based Kitchen Robotics company, it came naturally to me to don the different hats of a Product Manager be it a User advocate, Business analyst or the UXR.

From there on, I have moved on to help companies launch & scale their products that involved -

• Discovering opportunities by focusing on real customer problems.

• Built real-time data pipelines powering the business intelligence to understand their customer better.

• Leading multicultural agile teams spread across multiple geographical locations

• Oversaw product roadmap, requirements, UX research, design & POC development for next generation hardware IoT powered product.

I strongly believe in building the product right rather than the right product in one go, using MVP to validate the business idea itself not just the UX of the feature. For this, he taps into his inherent inquisitiveness to ask the right questions, then assembling and iterating on the best ideas to build the product right.

I would love to help people looking to find their way into product management, accelerating their own career path, learning to work effectively with stakeholders in complex environment and how to push forward when things are falling apart & my favourite - Imposter syndrome.

Abhishek was patient and he listened to all my questions and gave very practical advice. He was open for email follow ups also.

Very excellent guidance and help that he gave. He explained me something which I would say was something I was thinking but he made sure that I realise it and work upon it. So thanks Abhishek

It was really helpful. He explained how a Product Manager can be assessed, and topics on Product Strategy and Execution. Gave me advice me on my early career and what to look out for.

Abhishek was very friendly and easy to talk with. I could ask specific questions and get great advice rooted at understanding of my situation as well as his own personal experience.

Abhishek was amazingly helpful.. from going over his own interview experience, his introduction to the industry, the challenges & rewards, it was all great to know. He was also very generous with his time and knowledge - going so far as to share his own personal frameworks and process. I thought he went above and beyond, and took a lot of trouble to make sure I had all the assistance I needed (and helped me with things I didn't know I needed!). I cannot think of anything that needed improving . I would love to keep in touch with Abhishek going forward

Hi Abhishek,

The session was very helpful and you have a good direction on what is important for moving into Product Management. Currently I am juggling between different projects but it helps me prioritize the departments I will be working in. I am also feeling confident in being vocal about my contributions so far in the research team.

Thank you very much for the meeting.
