7. What were mistake and lessons learned?
naive. not enough questions. too much of a believer in the new PO and the Agile. I realised that they were not able to communicate properly on the core aspects of the product and where the problems really were lying (vision on the product and business).

13. What were your reasons for leaving?
Bad methodology, quickly without lack of technical basis, technical debt was high, highly focused on sales, built on a bunch of hacks to meet the needs of a specific client. there become huge technological debt. they spent a lot of time constantly pivoting. the team. The line of communication became fucked up. Bad for me as a person and wanted to move to Paris and be able to to see how things work well in other companies. I was not able to grow in this company. Since two years, they were 120 and today the company is probably 2 of the employees that were there when i was there.

7. What were mistake and lessons learned?
under evaluating things, over estimating the capacity of the team. ambition was to migrate to the cloud for scalability and management was too optimistic. I believed what Management told me. He should have challenged from the beginning.

13. What were your reasons for leaving?
six month ago in August 2019 - first six month of 2019 were really motivating and then realised they were biting off more than they could chew with far too many Epics. I took a lot on my shoulders but I know that there is a lot going on. I wasn't satistified at all, i wasn't feeling success. I loved the team. It was a difficult decision and I took 6 months to make the decision and told the boss that I would leave but only based on the conditions that he sets out for me.

14. What are your future career goals? Why do we answer that?
Solid team. Slightly structure and larger. Doesn't want to fall back in a team where he has to organised everything. Good technique comes from the good product. Directives and objectives (effect tunnel, technical debt) improve the communication between the product.

15. Why wouldn't you join us?
Lack of product vision, without business and clients. doesn't need necessarily to drive. wants devs to be happy and client success. without those then it doesn't make any sense.

17. What was your favorite project?
Product Manager big fan of Marty Cagan and in the last 6 months started working on the Product side of things and really started measuring and multiplied by 3 or 4. I applied something that worked! and it took me 6 months to implement it. Metric was "no on was using the Chatbot - the MVP was built with the vision of the CEO". Engagement, deliver content, hired a text editor, better scenarios, they used Landbot to let client success to do scenarios. The success wasn't entirely technical and only started coding at the end.
