  1. Senior Product Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at SV Academy (San Francisco, CA) in May 2021

    Interview

    This was one of my best interview experiences. I am still actually bummed about not being able to accept the offer from SV Academy. I decided to continue with my current employer since they had been good to me through the pandemic and decided to be loyal to them.

    I interviewed Tim, Joel, and Rahim, and had great conversations with each one of them. Speaking with Tim it was easy to conclude that any Product professional who aspires to continue to grow as a product leader would flourish with Tim as a mentor.

    Even after 5 interviews, Rahim got on a call with me on a weekend to better understand me from an EQ standpoint to ensure they were adding a member who was a strong cultural fit.

    The organization is very thoughtful about the people they add to the team which only means that it would be a really interesting peer set to work with. It was one of the most thought-provoking conversations I have had while pitching myself to an organization.

    I strongly recommend SV Academy to all Product Managers out there. A lot of growth opportunity and is all for a great cause.
    Interview

    It's a unique process (mostly behavioral) and wouldn't be fair to divulge too much information. Honesty is the key to assess a mutual fit. It's early-stage and has enough filters in place to make sure there is a good cultural fit which is key at SV.
