Spriha Tucker is a Product Manager building Internet-of-Things (IoT) Platforms at Google. Her past experience as a PM includes launching new advertising products on Search Ads at Google and building out A/B testing and experiment infrastructure at Microsoft. Prior to becoming a PM, she spent some time as a Quant Trader developing quantitative-trading models and electronic trade-execution algorithms at Morgan Stanley.
She attended the University of Pennsylvania, where she studied Econometrics for her Bachelors degree, Computer Science for her Masters degree and obtained a language certificate in Mandarin Chinese. After graduation she was fortunate enough to start my career at Google's APM program.
She enjoys playing the piano and building fun IoT devices. Devices she's built include a toilet-seat sensor that reminds your boyfriend/male roommates to put the toilet seat back down after use (hah!), a device that allows her to remotely open her apartment gate when a package arrives and she's not home, and a robot that, once completed, will be able to roam the office floor delivering snacks to hungry Googlers (currently a work in progress).
In this ten-week course, students will learn to navigate the product cycle, from evaluating users and managing a roadmap to creating an MVP and developing metrics.
