Starting interview process for product role with a Series A startup that raised $10M What are the key questions I should be asking? My thoughts: 1. What is the valuation? 2. What is the exit strategy? 3. What is the product (very vague idea after phone screen) 4. How will my boss help my growth? Very early in the process as you can see. Key concern is that I’d report to a Senior PM who has 1 year of consulting exp. and 1 year at the company. I’m approaching 1 year of consulting exp.
