Now that the formalities are out of the way I can say a bit more about what I’m going to do next.
I start a new part-time role next week with Rod and the team at Xero.
I will be head of product strategy. Rod posted earlier today about how they (we!) are dealing with prioritisation and product development, which explains quite nicely where this role fits into the bigger picture.
I’m excited about this new challenge. It’s an excellent opportunity for me to apply what I’ve learnt at Trade Me to a global product.
Rod has put together an amazing team and I’m going to enjoy being part of it.
I’m also looking forward to having time to get involved in some other ventures either as an advisor or investor. I’ve been pretty quiet in this respect up until now, but I have my eyes open.
Because Xero is in the middle of the IPO process I can’t say too much more than that at this point, but needless to say I will be posting more here in the coming weeks.
So, stay tuned.
