I recently completed a year (of working remotely!) at @gojektech, and thought of doing some reflection. Penning down my learnings as a Program Manager (PgM), at this hyperlocal southeast asian growth company/startup.

#ReflectionThreads are back - here you go 🥳

1/n Understanding the SEA super app market, business and competition has been of great value. Especially being able to provide user feedback for the SG app has been the cherry on the cake. It strengthened my 'customer centric mindset' and helped to develop empathy for drivers.
2/n Immense opportunities for growth : I could grow & lead programs / initiatives not only in the domain of Data & Engineering, but also in the field of Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) with support & sponsorship of great leaders.

I've been helping few friends/connections finding a new job in past few months and having changed a job myself before 3 months, I thought of jotting down my suggestions on #jobhunting. Here are 10 points that helped me immensely. #ReflectionThreads #Thread 👇
1/ Remember if you apply to 100 roles, you will receive a reply from 15 places, interviews from probably 5 and if you're lucky - then an offer from 2-3 places. So, #DoNotGiveUp - and APPLY at as many places as you can.
2/ You don't need to check EVERY criteria from list. As long as you're meeting 60% of the list, give it a shot! You never know which of your skill sets can compensate for the missing ones or sometimes the role CAN be changed just to suit your profile better. #NothingIsImpossible

Sunsetting programs (/products /projects) is quite normal in today's fast growing companies. Here're my #ReflectionThreads on top five things to keep in mind, while sunseting a program (can be applied to 'transitioning a program' as well to an extent).
Context - Various reasons to sunset a program could be:

- Change in strategy / vision / priority
- Lack of resources / budget
- Streamlining redundancies
- Unsatisfactory results
- Conflict b/w key stakeholders

... and more
1/ Don't get 'married' to a program (happens esp if it's your brainchild). Overthinking can disturb you, and will often make you take biased actions. Rather, think practically. Best to brainstorm ideas with an outsider who can see both sides of a coin.

1/ Next up in #ReflectionThreads : Throwing some light on ‘Developer Relations’ (DevRel) as a function.

2/ DevRel is useful for any company which has a tech product and is looking for increasing their developer base. Needless to say, the framework mentioned below would be applicable (at a high level) for various other (non-tech) products as well.
3/ Why DevRel? 🤔
- Engage with a unique audience : Developers
- Reach devs@scale (1:few:many)
- Help devs make *meaningful* solutions
- Receive critical product feedback

First in #ReflectionThreads: What are the dos and don'ts of Program Management?

Sharing some best practices that I learned, while running and leading programs for Google in India & Southeast Asia. Read below.👇
#ProgramManagement #Thread
1/ #Disclaimer: Program Management is a BROAD domain. The definition varies from a company to company, function to function. This thread might help address it from a tech/product company’s pov.
2/ #ContextSetting: Some examples of programs I worked on include - CS edu program for students, diversity programs for women in tech, accelerators for gaming and AI startups, AI/ML skilling programs. Also, each of them aligns with tech product/s at some point in time.
