O ano é 2016, estava trabalhando na GetNinjas — uma startup de tecnologia — há cerca de um ano enquanto preparava meu projeto de phD (Philosofical Doctor) em paralelo. Havia terminado todas as matérias na universidade antes de começar a trabalhar, então meu tempo era gasto praticamente estudando sobre Modelos Gráficos Probabilísticos, que seriam tema da minha tese. …


During this period of isolation, many people are taking the opportunity to do things they have always wanted but did not give due priority, such as enjoying with their pets, enjoying their children / family, taking courses online and finally many are taking the opportunity to read. As an avid reader and evangelist of the culture of reading, I decided to take the opportunity to recommend some books from my collection to help everyone who is willing to dive into reading during this quarantine.

I decided to choose 6 books that deconstruct concepts that we learned throughout our daily life…


The global online dating market was valued at $6,400.0 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $9,202 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2018 to 2025. This rising popularity has lead to a huge global user population of up to 220M people using dating platforms. It’s a huge and fast-growing market and this factor is probably responsible for the gigantic amount of companies that arise in this segment year after year.

Recently we decided to enter this market in our own company(JoySpot), so I started studying this market heavily to learn how can a Startup…


Durante minha experiência como um gerente de produtos — passado por diferentes times e companhias — fui exposto a muitas situações distintas que para lidar com elas exigiram que me desenvolvesse constantemente em novas dimensões. Como um leitor assíduo, comecei a ficar um pouco perturbado com o fato de que parte destas dimensões não estão presentes (ao menos em detalhes) na literatura contemporânea de desenvolvimento de produtos. Se você ler os principais livros ou artigos, provavelmente irá notar uma gama de dimensões (também extremamente importantes) que aparecem com frequência que da pra contar nos dedos.

O que realmente me incomodou…


During my experience in product management — on different teams, at different companies — I was exposed to many distinct situations that required me to be constantly developing new dimensions to handle them. As a ferocious reader, I started to get unsettled, because only part of these dimensions were deeply discussed in modern digital-products literature. If you read the top recommended books or articles about product management, you’ll probably notice, in general, there aren’t many PM dimensions presented.

What really bugs me is that some very frequent situations are ignored or just not explored well enough. They’re missing clear tools…


The number of people looking for jobs at StartUps has been growing year after year in the last decade, a modest number of students are already planning to work in this type of company since the early years of the University. In addition to the increasing share of these companies in the market, they are also more widespread in the media and pop culture(take HBO's Silicon Valley for instance). Nevertheless, talking to friends some friends or university freshmen I still realize a great deal of resistance to working at a StartUp, sometimes because their families raised them exposing the benefits…


In the last decade we have evolved a lot in terms of agile development, Agility has become its own concept and we have lots of books and conferences for this subject. Despite this movement, when we look at the complete development cycle of a product, from conception of initial ideas and assumptions to final delivery, we have tremendous productivity bottlenecks. Agile methodology has matured a lot in the technology development phase — when software engineers get their hands dirty — but everything that comes before it continues to be done in a old-fashioned way in most companies.

Do you think the role of a product manager is on the rise in today’s market around the world? They sure are! Vacancies have been growing exponentially and in the other hand it’s difficult to find professionals to fill them (even with exorbitant salaries). What if I say that’s a role that that even more requested? This role is what I call a Data Product Manager, a professional who, in addition to the product, have advanced knowledge of Data Science — nowadays this is a huge opportunity!

The main fuel for statistical & machine learning models — that underpins a…


Você acha que o papel de um Product Manager está em alta no mercado atual pelo mundo? Com certeza estão! As vagas vem crescendo exponencialmente e do outro lado continua difícil encontrar bons profissionais para preenchê-las (mesmo com salários exorbitantes). E se eu te falar que tem um papel que está ainda mais em alta? São o que chamo de Data Product Managers, profissionais que além de produto possuem um conhecimento avançado em Data Science — aqui há uma enorme oportunidade!

Principal combustível para modelos estatísticos (ou machine learning) que sustentam uma gama enorme de produtos, Dados são cada vez…


Na última década evoluímos muito em termos de desenvolvimento ágil, Agilidade se tornou um conceito próprio e temos livros e conferências próprias sobre o assunto. Apesar dessa onda, quando analisamos o ciclo completo de um produto, desde a concepção das idéias e hipóteses iniciais até a entrega final, temos tremendos gargalos de produtividade. A metodologia ágil amadureceu muito na fase de desenvolvimento da tecnologia — quando os engenheiros de software põem a mão na massa — mas tudo que vem antes disso continua sendo feito de maneira engessada na maioria das empresas.
