Six-Month Full-Time Program

 

Nare, PM

I studied Architecture. The best thing in the architect’s work is the creation of a Life Experience, very similar to that of a product cycle at the PM work.

 

Initially, I was working in the Content and Design area. Very soon I realized that I want to be part of the Life Experience of the app. So, I took part in the APM program.    

 

Now as a Product Manager, I go through the Life Experience flow (product cycle) every day! The only difference is that all these processes take place in the virtual world instead of the real.

Pietra, PM

I started working at PicsArt as a support specialist. I fell in love with the app, started to buzz around and pinpoint the improvements areas. So when one day, our current CTO told me: “You’re annoying everyone with the bugs and problems you notice, I suggest you take part in the APM program to become a PM and fix those yourself?” :)

 

This is the time when I took part in the APM program and became a PM. Now I’m here working as a Product Manager for the best team for almost 3 years!

Narek, PM

I started my way as a software developer. During the last 6 years at PicsArt, I worked on Windows and iOS mobile apps, became a tech lead and finally decided to change my profile and take part in the APM program. 

 

The APM program changed my professional life. I started seeing the whole picture of how the product is being initiated, released and promoted.

 

I am so happy with the decision to become a PM. PicsArt will never let you get bored if you are interested in discovering new areas and challenging yourself.
