VP of Growth
I have used Jira both for Scrum and Kanban for Marketing and Product. From the tools I have used for project management, Jira is one of my favorite. I have experience setting up the tool and using advanced filtering queries to make.

Guide to Product/Market Fit
People love to complain about Jira but the fact is, if you don't know how you need to work, Jira can't help you. But, if you do, It's a killer tool to push your delivery capabilities through the roof.

Managed teams and projects in Jira for 5+ years. I even was an interim scrum master for one of my teams. In other cases, I was a Product Owner. Prefer to use Jira together with Confluence.

Product Manager @ Twilio
I've been using Jira for as long as I can remember to act as our source of developer facing prioritization and requirements. It's a great tool for keeping everything centralized and has lots of tips and tricks to make output more efficient.

I have worked across a variety of product teams and have helped determine the best way to integrate design and design processes (from design concepting, final ticket, specs, review of builds, etc.) into the JIRA ticketing system and engineering workflows.

How does it works?

Step 1. Browse mentors

Browse through our list of mentors using the filters. Make sure to read their profiles and reviews in depth, and make your choice.

Step 2. Send session request

Found the perfect mentor for you? Awesome, time to request a call. Tell them a bit about your situation, choose a time, and get it set on your calendar.

Step 3. Get on 1:1 call

Time for the call, yay! Make sure you show up on time and prepared to make the most out of it. Pro tip: Ask your mentor if it’s ok to record the screen so you can take notes later.

Why talk to a Jira expert?

How a growth mentor can help you with Jira:

  • You’re using Jira to project manage your growth team but know you can be more productive with your workflow
  • You’re using another tool like Trello, and are curious about investigating the more powerful features Jira offers, talk it through!
  • You’re completely new to Jira and want to make sure you set up your workflows in a best-practice fashion
  • You’re an experienced project manager that’s on a mission to organize an unwieldy client’s business and want to get a 3rd party perspective by other Jira power users
  • You’re thinking of creating a similar SaaS offering to Jira and want to do market research

Whether it’s your first time setting up Jira or you’re an experienced Jira user that’s been using it for years, it can’t hurt to speak to other Jira experts to get their take on how to maximize the impact of this incredibly powerful tool.

Three choices:

  • Skype
  • Zoom
  • Google Hangouts

Mentors and mentees are able to set their communication tools in their profile settings.

It is a good idea to connect with the other person once the session is accepted and the details are given. This ensures that the correct details were given and when it is time to start, you can start on time.

Here are some tips on how to get the maximum bang for your time on growth mentor calls.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Yup! Many of the mentors offer monthly coaching packages for members who want to really dive deep into a specific area.

Each mentor creates their own package so what they offer and the price vary from mentor to mentor. You can find their coaching info at the top of their profile.
