I'm passionate about building great products and companies. Specific thoughts on these topics on Twitter: @JeffreyWhitlock & Medium: @jeff_whitlock
After starting my career at McKinsey & Co., I was fortunate to land a product management opportunity at Vivint.SmartHome. While working with a great team, we were able to build the best-rated smart home app at the time (4.5 stars over 2400+ reviews).
After leaving Vivint, I pursued my passion for Africa by joining a motorcycle taxi, ride-sharing startup in Uganda called SafeBoda. At SafeBoda, I wore many hats: product manager, UX designer, and call support director. Perhaps the most exciting and difficult challenge while at SafeBoda was building a world-class tech team with team members from 5 countries (Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Ghana, and the US).
At SafeBoda, we successfully built and launched the product, achieving 10K+ rides within the first 4 months. I, unfortunately, had to leave SafeBoda prematurely for personal reasons, but the company is still going strong and is now doing >8,000 rides per day.
Now, I'm working on building a great Utah tech company, Unbird. Our goal is to make the easiest way for product teams to listen and understand their customers at scale.
