Product Marketing Team Lead

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

It's easy to book time with other people or find out which conversations are already happening because everyone's calendar is viewable to all. Established cross-team groups are typically led by a point person. I can't overstate how much I appreciate both of those.

This open-minded environment has provided opportunity to grow my skillset in leadership and team management alongside my technical project management skills. After starting at LV as an App Specialist, I have risen to challenges and now find myself in a supervisory role.
