TOPIC: Roblox Product VP on Building Product Teams from the Ground Up
As a startup or a company new in product, you won't always have the luxury of starting with an experienced team. That's not to say you can't have an efficient, well-versed team capable of building a successful product. But how do you compile a productive development team with no initial framework? Roblox Product VP Matt Kaufman discusses how to build product teams from the ground up, using his years in executive leadership positions as support.
