Become a Product Makers Group Leader

Product Maker Group Leader

Want to get exclusive perks and help us grow the Product Makers community?

Group Leaders help us get people together.

  • Host meetups – virtual or in-person — 2 to 3 per year, bringing together members of our community to connect with one another socially and to share knowledge.
  • Keep the conversation going amongst group members in their designated Slack channel

Choose where you want to get involved

Whether you want to do one or both of these yourself or split the responsibilities across multiple leaders, we’re flexible in how you want to be involved and help. We anticipate that Product Makers group leaders will spend between 5-8 hours per month.

Ready to get involved?

We accept new applicants from our community members anytime.

Apply to join the program. This will take less than 10 minutes to complete. We’ll review your application and will follow up. 

Have a question?

Contact our community team or check out our FAQs below:


Whether you are the lone group leader or splitting the responsibilities with other group leaders, we anticipate you spending 1-4 hours per month.

Consider trying to co-lead a group. Perhaps there are others willing to lean in as well and split the work. Otherwise, wait until you have more time, we don’t want to put a bunch on your plate.



In this case, we’d be happy to discuss your application with the existing group leader and see if they are interested in having additional help with their group activities. Often they are more than happy to have more hands helping the group be successful. Typically we want no more than 2-3 people running a group. Either way, we’ll let you know.

Typically new meet or group channels are created when we meet these conditions:

  • We have a request from community members to create a new group
  • There is a sufficient number of group members (typically at least 10+) that want to connect and signals of that intent
  • We have someone committed to being a group leader and keeping the group active

Please note: You must have permission from us before starting a Product Makers group. This helps us maintain a consistent experience for our Product Makers community members globally.

Here are some examples:

  • Our #meet-vancouver, #meet-prague, #meet-boston, and #meet-toronto channels are examples of location-based groups
  • Our #group-product-operations is an example of a role-based group
  • A group for people working in #group-fintech, #group-hardware, and #group-greentech examples of industry or sector-based groups
  • Our #women-in-product is an example of an interest-based groups

We’ll reach out and arrange some time to chat. Generally, product can be a busy role and we understand the pressures that come with work/life balance. While this is a volunteer role, we also want it to be mutually beneficial, and if this isn’t a fit, we’ll remove you from the program and could consider bringing you back on when the timing may be better for you.
