My name is Alexander Mars, and I’m a Seattle based Product Manager / Program Manager (PM). My passion is in deploying software products and services to customers and end-users. I love communicating and collaborating with customers to understand their needs and accurately reflect them in the functional specifications. I’ve been working as a Program Manager / Product Manager (PM) over 15 years and always been learning new things. During that time I’ve delivered over hundred different software products, services and features. I’m proud to be a part of Project Management Professionals (PMP) community. It’s a highly valuable addition to my previously earned – Master of Science Degree (MSc) degree in Information Systems. My first job assignment was a System Engineer in the aerospace industry. I was responsible for designing modern avionic systems. Different types of system and flight simulators became my best friends for a long time.
That time I’ve learned a lot of new things. Shortly all of them helped me to get promoted to a Product Manager / Program Manager. My primary responsibilities were much extended. Everything has being pretty stable for a few years after that moment. The changes were going to come a little bit later when my family had decided to relocate to the Pacific Northwest.
Throughout my life I have a passion to learn new things and getting new skills. It helps me all the time. Moreover, I was interested in Web Technologies such as Web and Web Apps development since a student time.
