Evgeny Lazarenko

Evgeny Lazarenko

Lifelong expat, Product Management Lead, PhD

If you work in tech, moving abroad is not rocket science. I did that, and you can do that too.


In this course, I will teach you everything I learned in well over a decade. During that time I build a career that spans Asia Pacific and North America, switched jobs and professions, and coached peers who — just like you! — were looking to move to a better place.


I've sat at both sides of the table: as a candidate, and as an interviewer. As a member of technical hiring committee, I created an evaluation rubric and set up a product hiring process for a startup that was acquired by Intuit. I then evaluated countless of international candidates for product, engineering, and data analytics roles at both startups and public companies, such as Delivery Hero and Unity — all of which had employees from over 80 countries.


This course reflects how hiring mangers and interviewers think when speaking with international candidates: what they look for and what they are afraid of. It also builds on my experience teaching and coaching cross-cultural communication for product managers.


Together, you and I will build a search system that maximizes your chance of getting the international job offer you want.
