Who finds customers in companies? Managers do. In messenger teams, successful company management results in the growing number of happy users.
The creators of the Asian WeChat have been giving serious attention to that since the messenger foundation. Therefore, the messenger team took a thorough approach to the issue of hiring product managers.
If you have ever wondered why your favourite WeChat features were created and others were deliberately omitted, that was what product managers did.
Recently, WeChat began making “We Chat about WeChat” podcasts – theme digital audio or video files that can be downloaded from the cloud or viewed/listened to online. One of the recent podcasts was dedicated to the key decisions taken since the moment of WeChat foundation that have influenced the way it is now. The podcast features WeChat product managers Stephen Wang and Dan Grover.
They discussed the philosophy and the key values that have landed WeChat 600 mn monthly active users. Wang and Grover analyzed and took a retrospective look at problems and conclusions that WeChat had made from them.
Now WeChat seeks to expand its team and offers talented product managers that believe in the WeChat Lifestyle to join the company for a full-time position.
