Welcome to another episode of Develomentor. Today's guest is Deepanshu Madan.

Deepanshu has a Bachelors’s and Master’s in Computer science and has worked across a variety of technology development roles. He started his career as a Software engineer in Test, moved on to become a Senior Software engineer and led Android teams at companies like Expedia and OpenTable.
Most recently, he was a Product Manager on the Android team at Google, where he led multiple product areas for app development tools. Before this role, Deepanshu was a Product Strategy and Commercialization lead on the AdMob team, where he led product and business strategy for Google’s Mobile Ads product.”
“Most of the stuff I learned in the classroom isn’t really helping my career. But one thing I learned in college is how to learn.“
“I started looking up product manager roles just for fun. Funny enough I found all my jobs by just messaging people on LinkedIn.”
“For a product manager role, understand what your users want, execute, and get it out there.”
“It may look easy how I got the opportunity at Google. But I actually messaged hundreds of people on LinkedIn; hundreds of people even internally at Google too.”
“As a product manager, I had meetings all day and I basically never got time to work. You have to prioritize really well and you have to find out what’s really important at this second.”
“A key part of Process Labs is connecting engineering function to business value.”
