Product Management Leadership Ft. Jen Swanson, Optum



Thank you to lucidLIFT for underwriting our new Product Leadership interview series!

Featuring Jen Swanson, VP of Digital Product, Optum.

What does Product Management Leadership mean to you?

Whenever people ask what I do, I explain that my team and I figure out which features and capabilities to make it easier and more pleasant for users to do what needs to be done on our consumer-facing websites, and then we work with technical people, like developers and designers, to bring it to life.

For me, product management is this nexus of problem solving and creation that I find very satisfying. My main thrill in life is to bring order to the chaos and I think product management does just that.
