Big Life Wins:

Startup more than doubled in size since I joined. 15 > 40+ employees, $5mm ARR > $12mm ARR. There was cash burn when I joined – now profitable. Devised interim solution to pivot when FAANG killed the platform that product ran on. Took over PM after CTO left; no formal PM experience but smoothly and efficiently released features and improved quality.
