Bay Area Girl Geek Dinners – Definitely Does Compute

Bay Area Girl Geek Dinner #134: Sponsored by LinkedIn

LinkedIn Girl Geek Dinner

Join fellow girl geeks at LinkedIn in San Francisco on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 for dinner, networking and a panel discussion with several of LinkedIn’s Growth Data Scientists, Researchers and Product Managers!

LinkedIn’s growth has been up and to the right since the beginning. How did we get here and how do we plan to continue our growth? It is an ongoing challenge to measure how much value the growth is creating for our members. How do we measure the value of LinkedIn’s continued growth for both highly engaged and less active members?

Learn how we have rethought the way we measure success and refocused the team to align with these changes.

We’ll be talking about the changes we’ve made to measure and grow the value we build on LinkedIn, asking and answering questions like:

  • What is the history of Growth at LinkedIn?
  • How are we measuring success as a growth team and how has this evolved?
  • What are some of our strategies to move eQM?
  • What are some of the challenges of pushing eQM?
