Hi there! I’m Shayon, a Product Manager with a passion for learning, adapting, and embracing new experiences.
Born in Kolkata, India, I’ve had the unique opportunity to grow up in cities like Surat, Gangtok, Mumbai, Bangalore, Jamshedpur, and Pune. This nomadic lifestyle allowed me to study in 10 schools and learn five languages academically. These diverse experiences have shaped my worldview and played a significant role in my personal and professional development.
In late 2020, I moved to Toronto, Canada, and am currently exploring opportunities and projects in this vibrant country. I’m excited to connect with the thriving startup scene and contribute my skills to help drive innovation and growth.
Professionally, I’ve had the privilege to work in various industries, such as e-commerce, digital publishing, SaaS, physical sports, and food delivery. My career journey has taken me through multiple roles, including technology journalism, digital marketing, and product ownership. This wide range of experiences has honed my problem-solving, strategic thinking, and communication skills, making me a well-rounded and adaptable professional.
As a product manager, I leverage my technical and strategic expertise to drive business growth and deliver innovative solutions. My background in technology journalism has sharpened my writing and analytical skills, while my experience in digital marketing has given me valuable insights into branding, consumer behavior, and effective campaign creation.
Beyond my professional life, I am passionate about personal growth and continuous learning. I’m an avid reader of non-fiction books, always looking to expand my knowledge and understanding of how things work. My love for travel has exposed me to new cultures and experiences and provided me with fresh perspectives on life and work.
When I’m not busy exploring the world or learning something new, you can often find me in the kitchen experimenting with food, creating delectable dishes, or mixing up tantalizing cocktails. I’m a firm believer in expressing creativity and indulging the senses through culinary adventures.
So, that’s me in a nutshell! I’m excited to share my journey with you and look forward to connecting with others in Canada who share my passion for continuous learning, personal growth, and embracing diverse experiences. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something here that resonates with you!
