Dave Holsinger
Product Management & Marketing Leader
Minneapolis

My career spans 15 years in software development, 10 of them in product management. I pride myself on being market-focused but technically astute - I'm the type who reads the Wall Street Journal and Hacker news every day. You might find me at the office putting together a P&L analysis, editing marketing copy, munging data with Python, poring over Google Analytics, or working with sales to finish an RFP.
