The Mission

Interim Product Manager for Two Engineering Teams

In 2019, Jessica Dewald, Product Director (Expansion & Merchandising Tribes) at Omio, was looking to fill a Product Manager position for two of her engineering teams, one of these remote. This was a crucial role for the Air revenue stream where the Product Manager needed to lead multiple cross-functional initiatives for a mix of product discovery and delivery.

"[...] Two engineering teams were without a Product Manager. The engineers were missing a product counterpart, and someone who plans roadmaps accepts stories, and gives direction."

Jessica reached out to Mirela, the founder of Product People, directly on LinkedIn after noticing her deep Product Management experience.

"It has been perfect timing as I needed someone to support the team, and she happened to check out my profile. Her profile on LinkedIn is very professional, so was her first response and our first get to know meeting."
