Jorge Mir Álvarez

Product Manager

Hello! It's nice to meet you.

I love building digital products.

After a brief internship as a developer in a startup I realized I wanted to create digital products, but not focus on code. Instead, I found product management much more suited to my interests.

A background in telecommunications engineering (a mix between electrical engineering and computer science) has provided me with the ability to understand complex technical problems. Nearly three years collaborating with an online music publication has shown me how to be an effective communicator. Experience working closely with skilled designers has given me insight into solid UX and design practices.

I feel most at home writing user stories and providing practical solutions to user needs from start to finish. My work starts with user research to fully understand a problem and ends with validating the feature is performing as expected using product analytics. I'm comfortable iterating wireframes with designers, discussing technical implementations with developers or performing API calls myself.

I'm a firm believer in kaizen and iteration both in my personal and professional life. I have a solid foundation in agile methodologies (both Scrum and Kanban), and have followed lean practices both academically and professionally.

My biggest passions are music and technology, though I have plenty of experience across different sectors (including an attempt to start my own company) and am not afraid of new challenges.
