Experience in Product Management, Development and Building
Product Manager & Founder Work Experience
In my Capacity as Product Manager at Nywele Nyumbani LTD, which I also co-founded, I carried out the customer development cycle from as early as mid-2021. We validated the need for an “Uber for beauty” and launched. Since then, we’ve served over 150 homes in Nairobi and environs, grown our average reach to over 40K over various platforms and have a leads’ list of over 2K, all done with limited resources. During our operations, I continuously managed our goal-setting, our product releases, customer feedback acquisition and the prioritization of new features. Additionally, I had the privilege of carrying out the business development for our corporate clients and managing the collaboration between our tech and operations team so as to release high-quality software products which were developed in a varied range of languages such as Flutter, React, among others. Prior to working at Nywele Nyumbani, I was also part of the electronics team in Gearbox where I worked on hardware products and programming, mainly in Arduino. It was during my time there that I acquired an understanding of the mechanisms of hardware design and implementation, aided by the informative training that Gearbox provided to its workers.
I have an extensive background in engineering, having done my undergraduate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), with a specialization in Electronics. I also have knowledge of Arduino and Flutter, and I have managed products of complex web and mobile apps in the recent past. My knowledge in product design, especially UX design, stems from my natural curiosity when it comes to solving user needs and problems. Combined with my entrepreneurial experience, my technical background has been a tool in solving society’s problems of today.
