I worked with Joe at MeetMe (formerly myYearbook.com) for about 3 years, working closely together on numerous projects related to advertising and the Social Theater platform. (Social Theater is an advertising platform that allows brands to create custom engagements for Facebook.) In that time I found Joe to be an exceptional product manager who I enjoyed working with.
Joe’s product specifications were well thought out and clearly written. He focused on the “What” and left it to me and the other developers to define the “How.” While other product managers I’ve worked with define specs and requirements and expect them to be followed to the letter, Joe is open to collaboration and shifting gears if/when it makes sense. This made for a great working relationship between product and the development team.
I’d recommend Joe for anyone looking to improve the product development process in their organization.
