How to Collaborate in Distributed Product Teams by Pinterest PMs

This is a Co-Hosted event with - Miro (formerly RealtimeBoard). They organize meetups as part of their Reshaping Teamwork series that is designed to bring the community together to share insights and best practices for cross-functional collaboration.

As the industry evolves, product managers have to design products for global markets. They have to be adept at collaborating on a global scale with global teams of engineers, field services, business development, marketing, customer support and other functions around the world. Doing this on a global scale requires you to engage with worldwide customers, from different cultures and regions around the world. It is not simply about managing time zones but a well planned and intentional approach to work with remote teams. Technology is bridging the gap between local and remote. Whether you are working in a large corporation or a startup, you will learn ideas, practices and playbooks to be successful in. 

 This month, we are bringing together members of Pinterest’s distributed product team to share practices and solutions they use to keep their teams aligned and productive. In the spirit of remote collaboration, this meetup will be distributed as well! Come meet Sayantan Mukhopadhyay, who will represent the team in person, as Christine Tran in New York and Aaron Yuen at the Seattle office discuss via live video:


  • Product strategy leadership for global teams

  • Effective communication for remote PMs

  • Empathy-building in new product markets
