Innovation For Policy
Value Chain Factory
Senior Product Manager
A driven and determined Product Manager with 4+ years of experience in product development, customer development, and competitive market analysis. With a strong track record of managing and launching large, complex software products that require operational changes and close collaboration among multiple stakeholders.
Technology is ever-changing these days and it requires innovative and results-driven strategies and execution. I have spent the last couple of years working on empowering startups, developers, and engineering teams across Africa to build scalable products and technology solutions that have a global impact. I have had the pleasure of working with some of Africa`s most successful startups, developer communities and ecosystem enablers.
I have been involved in startup ecosystem in East Africa supporting enterprenuers through organising various accelerators and startup pitch events.
I also have experience in supporting software developers by supporting & running various hackathons, developer forums & events.
I'm currently working as a product designer, designing civic tech tools for Innovation for Policy Foundation and I'm also the founder of DevsKE - a platform for showcasing dev communities and dev profiles.
My name is Pamella Nyamunga and I am a Product Manager at Value Chain Factory.
After starting out in Monitoring and Evaluation (ME) as a research assistant for 2 years, I was exposed to the systemic and operational challenges that the business was facing. Because some of these challenges were technological, my interest in the product development life cycle was sparked.
Thus motivated, I pursued project management, getting to understand what goes into solutions development for around a year. While I still act as a project manager when required, the next step seemed to be to delve into Product Management, which is the role I currently fulfil.
As a product manager I own and manage the product vision, work cross-functionally with teams to steer solutions, create roadmaps, understand client/user needs and facilitate the building of products.
What inspired my journey? I’m drawn to systems; how they work, how they interact and how they can be made more effective.
My favourite pass time activities include cooking and gaming.
