Farid Hosseini of the EWMBA ’20 class speaks with us about his extensive experiences in Product Management from starting at Microsoft Messenger as a developer to moving into his first PM role at Microsoft Bing. He then went on to LinkedIn to serve as the Product Manager to build out a specific feature of LinkedIn that we all use today, the ability to look up alumni from your school or organization.
Next, he went on to explore Product Management at a higher level at Yelp and joined the growth team, which helps grow the user base of the product as a whole and not just one specific feature. After his success with his team at Yelp, he transitioned to Pinterest to tackle the monetization of Pinterest’s many features.
Farid discusses with us why he’s at Haas, to further hone his business acumen, and how he seeks to broaden his perspectives for future business endeavors. We wrap up talking about his entrepreneurial projects and advice he has for budding entrepreneurs.
