I was the design manager for this product for two years. I know my way around a workflow and scheme. There are heaps of best practices that I'm happy to share.

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.

Head of User Experience – Product Design & Research at
Introduced JIRA and mainly Confluence to two organisations. Not necessarily an expert for technical JIRA questions, however collected quite some experiences about how important a single source of truth is for an organisation. It's still a struggle to *really* make JIRA work for design teams, happy to exchange about a few ways which worked and many which didn't.

I'm an experienced JIRA administrator who can help teams design and implement productivity systems and procedures, including workflows, ticket types and fields, automated reports. etc.

“Extremely helpful call with Jason. He genuinely wanted to help and asked questions before the session. Awesome CRO advice that we’ll immediately implement. Will definitely be booking another session when we’re ready!”

Max completely blew my mind and now I have to reconsider everything I thought I knew about B2B SaaS analytics. We mostly discussed Mixpanel, Google Analytics and Amplitude. How they should be properly setup and some advanced considerations with them.

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.

Frequently asked questions

Have a question you don't see here? Ask us on live chat!

We have a very detailed filter system for you to sort the mentors. Filters like areas of expertise, tools, language, price and industry.

Members can also post a help request and have mentors apply to help if they feel they are a good fit.

Then the third option is to just ask us! Give it a try right now and ask us on live chat 🙂

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.
