Adrienne Alyzee is a product manager at Tesla. She combines her love of design, NLP, and machine learning into the role.
Adrienne’s career took off as the founder of a biotech company, using the ML concept of computer vision to automate drug development. Afterward, her multidisciplinary skills landed her positions at some of the biggest companies in the world — places such as Google, Bridgewater, Y Combinator Research, and, today, Tesla.
Besides her product management career, Adrienne loves to build things and to write essays that guide others in her field. Her articles provide insightful observations on industries she believes will shape the future: like self-drive cars.
Among the various successful products Adrianne created, a worthy mention goes to Pip, an iOS app that enables kids to code.
Tesla's product manager believes that self-driving cars are the future.
She argues that autonomous vehicles will help people enjoy more productivity by eliminating driving times — think of what you could do with 2 extra hours a day! In one essay, Adrienne says: “Imagine working out in a self-driving gym on your 40-minute commute to work”!
But Adrienne also believes that self-driving cars will transform shopping and revolutionize the retail economy by reducing delivery costs. She says that "the self-driving economy will do for physical goods what the internet did for streaming” (read more in her essay, here).
Adrienne has also partnered up with fellow PM Alexis Kim, for more knowledge sharing resources. Together they created the "product managers at work" newsletter. In it, the two share insights and industry best practices to help PMs build, launch, and scale their products.
