- You need someone who knows enough about “everything”
- You need the ‘get job done’ mentality in your team
- You don’t need a ‘rockstar’ but someone who integrates well else
I run a Web Design and Development Agency based out of US. Saqib was crucial in helping my Agency grow and scale. We did over $300K in sales in 2022 and Saqib was a big part of it.
He was a versatile team member who made significant contributions in being the product manager/strategist for enterprise clients, and help build out repeatable and scalable processes at the same time.
Saqib also was in charge of leading an entire design and development team and make executive decisions on the projects and built relationships with our clients who were extremely happy.
Saqib is a true pleasure to work with. He is an incredibly talented product owner and keenly knowledgeable on all facets of product development. And more importantly, he is a person of great character. The energy he brings to projects, his wit and sense of humor, his ability to work cohesively with any team, and his limitless creativity — Saqib brings his A game each and every time. Hire him, and good luck keeping him because a talent like Saqib is going to be in hot demand.
Saqib is a friend and an ex-colleague of mine, we worked together on several projects. We have spent countless hours discussing new ideas, looking at how to optimize different processes, coming up with ways to solve different client problems, and much more.
Saqib is one of the most versatile and knowledgeable people I have ever met in tech. He has a wealth of experience and expertise in various domains and technology is his passion. And he channels this passion by being an awesome all-rounder Product Manager.
He is the actual know-it-all and done-it-all kind of person but in a humble and helpful way. Whenever we have discussions and we share different ideas and discuss different topics, I come out head-scratching "That's one way to look at it".
It is constant learning with him and I highly recommend him for any role that requires technical excellence, creativity, and innovation.
When I see the phrase 'self motivated' - Saqib embodies this.
He was already a proven trailblazer at IrisVision when he made the move to CitrusBits as a Product Owner. He excelled at learning the role and requirements in record time. He brought in his previous experience with marketing and SEO to solve our customer's problems and make recommendations.
He partnered with our existing product team to plot our process and identified gaps and solutions. Saqib took on every aspect of our process that he could to contribute and grow. We wouldn't have made the progress we have without his knowledge and leadership.
I'm confident he will continue to make a lasting positive impact in all his future opportunities.
I have worked with Saqib directly in Crowdbotics, where he was responsible for managing a couple of high importance projects.
He is a great researcher, able to collect information from various resources and strategize the best path forward for the success of complex projects. I was also impressed by his ability to leave great first impressions in the clients and internal parties he interacted with.
He was able to back up the good impressions he left by delivering on what was promised, and going beyond the limitations of the job description thinking as a great product manager, to advise on successful product strategy directions.
Every winning team has a "Most Valuable Player", and Saqib is that MVP. Leaving a job in his hand is to forget worrying about its success - you will have the certainty that Saqib will do his best to deliver the best results. The problem and the solution are always viewed from a 360 degree perspective by him. His conviction will always be able to take you to the next level!
Saqib is a very unique mix of talent and expertise. As a Business Owner I need people who can adapt to any task at hand - his versatile experience as a Product Manager sets him apart.
