Hi There, thanks for visiting!
I’m James (@jsenior) and I work on the OneDrive team at Microsoft as a Product Manager. Part of my job is focused on shipping features that create value for customers and partners. I also spend time refining our product development tools and processes to ensure that, as a team, we are able to ship more valuable features – and at faster pace – than our competition.
Prior to my current role I led a Product Strategy & Management team at a digital agency in Seattle called Ratio. We helped clients build digital products that people love to use by applying various product management practices and tools. I’ve also had various roles at large companies and startups in marketing, business development, technical sales and software development.
As a software engineer by training, I’ve found that my diverse experience has helped hone my ability to channel voice of customer into products and speed up the pursuit of product / market fit.
I’m a transplant from Great Britain but am now enjoying life in Seattle where it actually rains less (I know, crazy) than back in England. You see, the weather back in England is changeable which makes planning – even the morning of – difficult. In the States I’ve learnt that the forecast is somewhat accurate. Anyway, I digress.
Outside of work I enjoy golf, football (soccer) and travelling. I live with wife Breanne, our daughter Livie and our dog, Reece who is quite the princess.
I hope you enjoy my musings and feel free to comment or reach out to me direct – I’m always open to a good conversation.
