The Workchop Conversations is an ongoing series of conversations with different players in both the legal tech & justice tech space, sharing about their work and innovative role within the space, promoting access to justice in Africa.

This week, we have Damilola Ajiboye, Product Manager at DIYlaw. Damilola is an avid learner and a technology enthusiast. In the past, he had tried his hands on different things like Digital Marketing, Web design, and development, and fashion blogging. Currently, he finds himself always excited about using technology to solve user’s pain points hence his passion for product management. At DIYlaw, he manages the company’s products by working with customers and team members to improve on already existing product offerings and introduce new products that address user’s vulnerabilities.

Tell us, what’s your typical workday like?

I start the day by checking emails (To see if I’m not serving as a bottleneck to any process) and attend to them as a matter of priority, I then check the product backlog and track progress, Monitor key metrics, NPS, and compare with same weekday of the previous week, I check the product roadmap to see if there are initiatives/timelines that need adjustment, wrap up the day by reading Industry news from Google Alerts.

Tell us about the products/services you manage at DIYlaw.

I manage DIY Registrations, DIY Documents, DIY Engage, DIY Resources, and some products in the pipeline.

What apps, gadgets or tools have you been relying on to work and how do you use them?

The apps I use are Slack for Communication, GSuite for Team Collaboration, Jira for Project Management and Roadmapping, Figma for Design and Prototyping, Google Analytics for Data Analytics, and Delighted for Net Promoter Score. 

What are you currently reading, watching or listening to?

I listen to NPR’s How I Built This Podcast by Guy Raz. It’s a podcast on how entrepreneurs (startup founders) painstakingly built their businesses from the ground up. It’s an amazing show. 

Who would you like to answer these questions?

I nominate Oluwatosin Amusan.
