An interview with Matt Arbesfeld. Matt is a Thiel Fellow and founder of LogRocket, a platfom that helps you understand problems affecting your users, so that you can get back to building great software & great products. Matt is passionate about using data to drive product decisions & helping to align all of the parts of the product trio around what's important for the product.
We talk about a lot, including:
- The mission behind LogRocket, how they started out building a tool for developers before realising that product managers were coming and using it too
- How he went from a tech internships into company foundership, how this wasn't his first rodeo and how he's known his cofounder since he was 1 month old
- Whether they had trouble taking a developer-focused tool, abstracting just the right level of data for non-developer users, and why good UX isn't just for B2C apps
- How they validated the need for the product management use case and whether they tried to build everything with the same team or split everything by value stream
- The importance of being able to have data to monitor your product feature launches and the types of decisions you can quickly make if you have that data available
- How having one source of truth on your product can help to align all parts of the product trio and allow you to make good product decisions
- The story behind Thiel Fellowships and whether they help or hinder the tendency for tech firms to hire out of the same exclusive circles
And much more!
