Hello 👋

Unfortunately, I don't have any available slot for the next 4 weeks

    My name is Melissa Niu and I am currently a Product Lead at Lyft building out our new car rentals business after spending 2.5 years working on driver app experiences. Previous to Lyft, I have held a variety of product roles in enterprise software (Microsoft Outlook/Exchange), search UX (Bing), and user generated content driven ML products (Glassdoor). Happy to chat about PM development, career management, the role or product in various companies/teams, or anything else you might want help with. Looking forward to meeting you!
