Meet the Speakers: Bowen Slate-Greene Bowen Slate-Greene -- I’m a Senior Staff PM at Etsy. I originally joined as a part of the Member Services team (my background is academic, not tech!). I snuck my way into product management shortly after, training on teams responsible for the core shopping experience. More recently I’ve had the privilege to work on multifaceted products that seek to align buyer, seller, and internal operations needs, such as the “Star Seller” program and new types of seller growth tools.
