What People Say About Us
Matt has a real passion for product discovery. He has a rare blend of skills - its not often that product managers have the maths background to do detailed analysis, development experience to understand what is possible, and the outgoing personality type that is genuinely energised by talking to customers. Matt works well as part of a product trio and still has strong bonds with the designers and tech-leads he has worked alongside. He pushes his own personal development and has a wide range of tactics and frameworks to draw from in any given situation.
Nick is an excellent Senior Product Manager who applies first principle thinking to identify the root cause and then gets stuck into solving the heart of the problem. He is also very capable and comfortable wearing startup hustle hats and understands where to be patient vs when to be urgent. Technically solid and very data orientated, a meticulous planner and executor who regularly pulls our projects over the finish line.
Chris PrescottProduct Leader & Founder
Matt is a Product Manager I would hire again and again. Matt provides an excellent blend of pragmatism and objectivity - he's strong with data plus Reforge trained for growth tactics - combined with product instinct and the courage to take fast decisions. This blend IMO is a critical trait of highly successful PMs. While already well experienced, Matt is on a great trajectory and I have every confidence his career will over time include Product Leadership roles and perhaps one day Founder status too. In addition, Matt is someone of high integrity, very passionate about product and an incredibly humble and curious character.
Chris PrescottProduct Leader & Founder
Matt is a dedicated scholar of product discovery, management and growth. He has the training, curiosity, personality and skillset to turn an idea into a real world product constantly iterating to ensure product market fit. 👍
Alister RollinsCEO & Founder
Working with Matt you get… - a top guy - end to end accountability…things off your plate in the hands of someone you can trust - someone who just “gets it” - a doer…happy and skilled at speaking to customers and the CEO! - results…with clear actionable data - someone who runs towards problems that need solving…not away from them
Justin MendletonCommercial Director
Nick is a rare breed, leaning on his background skills as a developer to bring insightful technical knowledge to his role as a Product Manager. Totally engaged in all aspects, from building out the proposition to prototyping, through to bringing the product to market. Nick is very dedicated, loyal and truly took ownership of the product set, as an evangelist of all things Coull. He was constantly looking to iterate and improve, and embraced new ways of working to move the digital projects forward. He’s a great person to have on your team and I learnt a lot from him: smart thinking, positive, friendly and fun, and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him.
Kate ThorpeDelivery Manager
It's been an absolute pleasure working with Nick. He’s an one of the most innovative, customer focused, results driven product managers i've ever had the privilege of working with. Given his developer background he has a unique ability to prototype, and iterate incredibly quickly, creating proof of concepts and de-risking projects. I would without hesitation recommend Nick at a high level role in any company lucky enough to have him.
