Although I work closely with engineers and TPMs, I lacked a basic understanding of their "language" and technical perspective. As I explore becoming a founder myself, the Skiplevel program helped me build a technical foundation so I can credibly communicate and understand technical trade-offs. Skiplevel does a great job balancing the depth/breadth of the content with how digestible and interactive the experience is!
Nicole Tay
Head of Marketing @ Skynet Labs

I was struggling to keep up and communicate confidently with developers.. Skiplevel helped me not only speak more confidently to engineers, but it also helped me land interviews in product management. This was a huge leap for me having no formal tech background and being from the healthcare industry. This course absolutely helped me fill in my technical gaps.
