Meet Adrienne Domingus, Software Development Engineer at Skilljar

I'm very excited to welcome Adrienne Domingus to the Skilljar team as our Associate Software Development Engineer! Adrienne recently returned to Seattle from Denver, where she spent the first part of her career with the Denver-area public schools in operational and training roles. After several years, she decided to change careers and went back to the Turing School of Software & Design because she loved building systems and software.

3 Reasons Why Product Managers Make the Best Startup Founders

In the world of high-growth technology startups, many people have weighed in on the ideal functional backgrounds for founders. Common models are:

  • Hipster, Hacker, Hustler - The trio of designer, developer, and sales person.
  • Technical Founders - Think Mark Zuckerberg or Bill Gates. Founders get extra credibility for dropping out of college.
  • Design Founders - The success of Apple and Airbnb show the potential world-changing impact of design thinking.
Strangely, product managers (PMs) almost never show up on this list. In my view, PMs are severely underrated in early stage startups - as Skilljar grows, I'm increasingly finding my personal background in product management to be a critical foundation for success. Read on for the 3 reasons why product managers make the ideal founders.

Meet Matt Buchan, Director of Finance at Skilljar

I'm very excited to introduce Matt Buchan, our new Director of Finance and Operations at Skilljar! I had the great privilege of working with Matt while at Amazon, and am absolutely thrilled to be doing it again. There is an incredible amount of back-office operations at a rapidly growing SaaS startup - financial planning and analysis, data and metrics, forecasting, bookkeeping and controllership, accounts receivable and payable, payroll, invoicing, income and sales tax, not to mention all the other corporate functions (HR, IT, procurement, facilities, compliance, and more). In just 1 week, Matt has already taken over these responsibilities and is making an enormous impact.

Matt is originally from Seattle and has spent the last year on sabbatical traveling the world. I have also recently learned that he is "virtually unbeatable at Bananagrams," and as a former Jeopardy contestant and American Crossword Puzzle Tournament participant myself, I heartily accept the challenge!

Welcome Matt!
