Let's dig in

This Sprint will help you level up (and interview prep) for roles like:
Product Strategy
Product Operations
Product Manager
Associate Product Manager
Product Specialist
Product Owner
We simulate a project you'd work on in a Product role.
You’re a member of the Product team at a SaaS e-commerce company (like Shopify!). You'll define the company's product strategy, create a roadmap, draft a product requirement document and prioritize a feature list. You'll gain a holistic view of product and learn from mentors in product management and product operations.

With interactive workshops, mentor office hours to tackle live case studies, and small-group guidance from your Product mentors, you’ll learn Product fundamentals and apply them as you tackle a typical project that you’d get in a Product role. You’ll get exposure to and build experience across the entire spectrum of a product role - from strategy through to execution.

Over the course of 7 weeks, you will define the company’s product strategy, feature list, draft your first product requirement document and fight for what you think should be a priority. After pitching your feature list to key stakeholders, you’ll then carry your prioritized feature all the way to launch by building a strategy for its rollout. 

This Sprint will help you gain a more holistic view of Product. You’ll learn from mentors who have experience working across the Product spectrum, including Product Management, Product Operations and in BizOps.
Who is this for?
Though there are no prerequisites for this Sprint, we’ve found that these three profiles get the most out of it:
  • You’re exploring a career pivot into Product from another role in tech or from another industry altogether.
  • You already work in Product and want to deliver more impact in your current role by learning from mentors at other companies
  • You work with a Product team and want to better understand their day-to-day so you can work better, together.
If you don’t fall within these three buckets or you’re unsure, apply anyways!

Note: this Sprint does not focus on data analytics. If you want to learn that, check out our Core Sprint instead!
