Ship fast and grow

Tina Nguyen


My strategic thinking enables me to quickly assess complex situations and develop insightful solutions—there's very little that I can't figure out.

Combined with my years of experience as VP of Design, Director of Product Management, and software engineer at startups and established companies, this superpower has enabled me to achieve impacts such as uncovering user needs, improving team dynamics, supercharging others' growth, transforming organizational processes, and successfully navigating 0→1.

I lead with empathy, focusing on collaboration and growth to create a culture of excellence and positive impact for individuals, teams, organizations and end users. I approach challenging situations with openness, humor, and optimism, motivating others to use their agency to solve difficult problems. My intimate familiarity with risk and failure enables me to manage them well—I do not suffer from decision paralysis.

Why trust me as your partner?

Because I've done it before.


I spend a lot of time growing this little one too.

What you can expect

A partner to help your team execute, grow, and thrive.


People and relationships are at the core of my work. When team members thrive, overall performance improves, resulting in more value for end users and better outcomes for the organization.


Open communication is essential in all successful work relationships. If we are able to raise and discuss issues then we can find a way to overcome challenges.


Adopting an inquisitive mindset and asking lots of questions helps me to empathize with others, build better products and effective partnerships.


My default is to challenge what is possible and pushing through discomfort to explore and continually grow, helping others to do the same.


Tina is a powerhouse ... She's a delightful collaborator. Tina's high energy, sense of humor, openness, and eagerness to share and train others are all critical assets in the ups and downs of startup life.
