Damien Beard About Me Profile Picture

My passion for most of my adult life has been to improve the lives of others through thoughtful products and technology, as well as through acts of service. After completing my degree and working as a software engineer for half a decade, I have moved into Product to focus on solving the problems that affect people the most. I have a focus on scale, with a specialization in SEO to reach a wide and diverse set of users.

I have been fortunate enough to have my journey take me to San Francisco’s tech scene, working for both a startup (Frankly Inc.) and an established technology company (LinkedIn). Prior to moving to the United States I graduated from a Bachelor of Software Engineering with First Class Honours from The Australian National University.

As a Product Manager I have built products used by millions of users, led massive SEO migrations, and driven significant growth to a user base. As an Engineer I have launched a content distribution platform for local news organizations, built a scalable real-time chat service along with an administration console and countless pages and features across LinkedIn.

If you’re curious, these are the languages I have the most familiarity with:
