New Member of the Team: Felix Rehbach, Senior Product Manager
Meet our new colleague Felix Rehbach, who started as a Senior Product Manager with DieProduktMacher in August 2021, and learn about his journey from project management to product management.

1. How did you end up at DPM?

After a few years in different agency networks within several agile roles from Project Manager, Scrum Master to Proxy-Product Owner, I wanted to deepen my knowledge about digital product management to work on real user problems. A very good friend recommended DieProduktMacher - a place for personal growth and like-minded digital product enthusiasts with clear customer-centricity.

2. Why did you want to change your career path from project management to product management?

Solving real-world user problems is really what drives me, and it's what I'd want to focus on even more. In my previous role as a Project Manager, my KPIs were much more output-oriented than outcome-oriented. Of course, it is super important to keep track of the outputs and optimize, but the main focus should be the outcome for the users. As a Product Manager, I can proactively contribute to uncovering user problems, understand them through discovery, and afterward collaborate with my clients and a multidisciplinary (UX Design, Tech, and Data) team to solve them.

3. Can you tell us a little bit about your first months of working at DPM?

The objective for the first three months was to arrive and get-to-know DPM. I had several onboarding sessions with each department, the management, and my product fellows. On top of that, I also had the opportunity to learn more about the core values and different methodologies in internal coaching. From a product perspective, my colleagues enabled me from the start to build up a new client. I am currently responsible to define the retail web platform strategy for a medical product. In the first months, we worked collaboratively with UX design, digital marketing, and IT to define the newly unified product vision, mission and aligned on the scope for the MVP.

4. How do you balance work with your personal life?

Personally, I have to say it is not about balancing or in other words keeping work and private life separated for me. I am more about integrating my work life into my personal life. Next to my passion for digitalization, I love good filter coffee, cooking new recipes, listening to interesting podcasts, and trying out new sports or travelling to new places. I really appreciate the possibility and flexibility at DieProduktMacher to organize my work life around my personal needs.

5. What makes DPM different from other companies?

Honest and sincere appreciation.

DPM cares about you, your personal and professional goals and always reacts to individual needs and feedback. The company purpose "Happy people create great experiences!" is not only a statement - It is reflected in the daily work & in every meeting and activity. For example, during my onboarding phase, I had an entry interview, which was about my personal and professional goals and how DieProduktMacher can support me on this journey. Now we have regular One-to-Ones to check the more tactical topics as well as One-to-Ones for my personal evolvement.

6. What are the five phrases you would use to describe a workday at DPM?

Respect - Appreciation - Passion - Challenging - Ownership
