I’m Saif, and I’m a Product Manager by passion and profession. This is my little corner on the web.
Saif Hassan is also known as saiftheboss7 in public forums & online communities.
I was 15 when I started this website out of rogue experiments. Now I’m in my twenties. Time has gone fast! I was always fascinated by technology from the beginning. Somehow the puzzles fell into the right places and I’ve taken Product Management as my job.
I work as a Product Manager at weDevs. Where developers are focused on code, architecture, performance, and engineering, I would focus on the big picture of “what are we trying to do” and on the details of the user experience, the feature set, and the way the product will get used. It is almost impossible to document a complete list of the responsibilities that I maintain. Ex Product Manager at Poptin & Premio.
5x Dean’s List scholar. I graduated Summa Cum Laude. Known for combining analytical aptitude with creative intuition.
I’m an entrepreneur, and I founded my own company. I was also featured in Microsoft’s 2016 October Event: https://is.gd/uQANo3 I believe good design is not picking colors and making them pretty. Good design is removing steps, understanding motivations, and making it clearer, more navigable, faster, and easier.
It is how it works, not how it looks. I was also a speaker at an event hosted by WordPress Co-founder Matt Mullenweg. I love talking about human-centric design and human-computer interaction and am an advocate of user-centered products.
Apart from working as a PM, I love writing. I am a writer by day and reader by night. As a PM, I oversee and manage a portfolio of products including WordPress plugins, SaaS, and Shopify apps. Obsessive about designing great human-centric user experiences that users love to use. I have sound knowledge of Human-Computer Interaction, and I focus on creating experiences that follow HCI principles. Possess strong technical knowledge of WordPress & SaaS products. Other skill sets include UX design, Python, C#, C++, C, and Java. Passionate about learning new things.
I bring together a team and rally them around. It is my job to tackle a business problem and work with marketing teams to solve customer issues with unique and innovative solutions.
I serve as the coordinating point where all the disciplines come together – I am a hub that connects different teams, including designers, developers, testers, and marketers.
I love communities. Co-founded a 500K+ member community that got featured in the local media ↗ and BBC Bangla ↗ I’m a passionate speaker; you can find me talking about WordPress, community, open-source projects, and human-centric design.
I’m passionate about blogging, WordPress, Google, SEO, Gadgets, Macs, Smart Phone, and helping others. Other interests and post topics include Photography, Psychology, Literacy, Science, Bengali, and Life. :-)
I firmly believe that the websites and the tools used to build them should be well crafted, intuitive, and accessible.

“Do I really look like a man with a plan, Harvey? I don’t have a plan. The mob has plans, the cops have plans. you know what I am, Harvey? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught one. I just ‘DO’ things. I’m a wrench in the gears. I HATE plans. Yours, theirs, everyone’s”– Joker (The Dark Knight)
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”Steve Jobs
“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”Abraham Lincoln
