What we're about

ProductTank Auckland is for anyone with an interest in product management. This could include product managers (at large organisations such as telcos or banks, at global software businesses based in Auckland or startups) those who want to get into it, or the generally curious. Product managers have to wear many hats but there are good practices that we can call on to do our jobs better, so let's get together to share war stories and take product management in NZ to the next level.

ProductTank is a global network of meetups and provides an opportunity for Product Managers to exchange ideas and experiences about Product Design, Development and Management, Business Modelling, Metrics, User Experience and all the other things that get us excited.

Events include talks from guest speakers on topics around product management, networking opportunities, and a good old-fashioned chin-wag over a beer or two.

We're open to companies big and small. We also welcome early-stage technology businesses looking to learn how to get their ideas off the ground.

ProductTank Auckland is brought to you by Product Aotearoa which brings together product people from across the country. You can connect with fellow Kiwi product people by joining our Slack channel here: https://bit.ly/JoinPASlack

We also have a blog and encourage the community to get engaged by commenting on or writing new posts for http://www.mindtheproduct.com

Weaving Ethics into Product Management

Needs a location

Weaving ethics into product management - the value diversity, dissent, and deliberate practice brings to the products we build and the communities we serve. Join us for this collaboration between ProductTank and Product Talks Auckland!

About our speaker:
Tanya Johnson has survived Google copying the product, a micromanaging CEO, Water(scrum)fall, the ‘hack’ coming from inside the house, pandemic-driven organisational change, and HiPPOs everywhere in her two decades in SaaS product management. As VP of Product at Auror, these horrors inform her work in humane team leadership, scalable product practices, and sustainable culture in a fast-growing SaaS organisation. Now she doesn’t break a sweat as she fends off inadvertently propagating social problems faster with code, all while keeping the team happy, and the profit growing. In addition to being VP of Product at Auror, Tanya is also the founder of Auckland’s Women in Tech Meetup, and you can find her on twitter as @pixelwench.

This will be a hybrid event - we're trying out getting back to in-person events and there will be networking before and after the talk, but we also have the option for you to attend online! Please note in your RSVP if you intend to be there in person so we know how many will be there at our venue. Huge thanks to Xero for hosting us and sponsoring the food and drinks for this event.

We will be using the large event space at Xero so there will be plenty of space to spread out and stay safe for those attending in person.

If you are joining us online the live stream will start just before 6pm, see the comment below for the link!
