About

Product Strategist with a user-centered approach to digital products.

 

Mary Finer

I'm a product manager with eight years of experience working on consumer-facing and SaaS products. 

I like to make products great. I support the design process with user research, writing, storytelling, negotiation, and statistical analysis. I find simple solutions for complex problems.

As a product manager at ITHAKA, I lead a front-end scrum team that designs and builds a cultural heritage digital library using agile and lean UX methodologies. I write and test product hypotheses based on user research and analytics to improve user experience and increase usage and engagement KPIs.

In 2012 I received a M.A. in Media Studies from The New School for Public Engagement.

I used to be a dog person but now I'm a cat person.
