Strategy, Product, Engineering, and Growth



Diaminding is a collection of articles and essays about topics in strategy, product, engineering, and growth.


Hey šŸ‘‹šŸ¾, Iā€™m George - a product manager based in Berlin, Germany.

I started my career in finance and business development. After earning an MBA from EDHEC Business School, I switched to marketing and did growth-oriented marketing for a few startups. My focuses were user acquisition and conversion optimization.

The technical side of marketing inspired me to study design and web development. I started teaching myself HTML, CSS, and JavaScript in January 2016. Ten months later, I landed my first programming job at Aperto - An IBM Company (IBM iX).

After ~5 years in frontend engineering, I decided to make a lateral move into product management to apply my business and technical skills to aligning people and driving business outcomes.

I aim to keep my business problem-solving skills broad and sharp. So, I cross-train strategy, product, engineering, and growth via side projects and keep score via my project MRR, which is currently zero šŸ˜….

My training often leads me to study the fundamental concepts of the social and natural sciences, especially history, complexity, psychology, cognitive science, biology, and finance.

My approach to learning is practical, which means I prioritize facts, data, and evidence first, personal experience second, and intuition third. When possible, I use the same approach to make non-trivial life decisions.

I publish via Diaminding to refine my thinking and share my learning with people, especially business people with strong technical skills, solopreneurs, and indie hackers. My goal is to help people (including myself) make better business decisions via brief, well-researched, informal, and actionable writing.
