Hi, I'm Inga! I'm a product manager based in New York and originally from the Bay Area.
In my spare time, I organize tea experiences, try my hand at Japanese wheel throwing, and am always trying new restaurants.
I'm passionate about machine learning and its ability to highly personalize user experiences, to make users feel like a product was made just for them, to make them feel seen, known and deeply valued. I have spoken on machine learning from a product perspective at conferences across Europe and New York.
When I moved to New York, I started and now co-lead the NYC chapter for Women in Product, where we host regular events and gatherings to bring the product community together. I also run a monthly breakfast for women PMs in NYC.
Before Squarespace, I was a product manager at Automatic Labs, where I helped start the product org and built products using data science and machine learning to create actionable insights and personalized recommendations for drivers around fuel efficiency and car maintenance. Before transitioning into product, I was an early business hire at Automatic, and wore many hats across strategic finance, business development, and product marketing, playing a big role in securing our Series B round of funding. Automatic was acquired by Sirius XM in April 2017. Before Automatic, I was an investment banker at Jefferies working on technology M&A transactions and debt financing. It's been really interesting having sat on both sides of the deal table.
I am a proud UC Berkeley alum and tech is in my blood - my parents were software and hardware engineers in Silicon Valley, way back when Sand Hill Road was just another highway exit. I now shuttle between NYC and the Bay, mostly in search of the best food. For a more detailed story, head over to About!
