I’m Nickey Skarstad and I’m a Director of Product Management at Duolingo.
I have 13+ years of experience building consumer products across diverse product stages, from pioneering 0-1 ideas to large-scale, monetized solutions reaching millions of users. With over a decade of experience building at some of the world's most beloved brands, including Etsy, Airbnb, and Duolingo, I’ve honed my product sense to a fine art.
On the early team at Etsy, I helped power seller businesses with meaningful tools. And on the early team working on Airbnb Experiences, I helped the team find product market fit and scale the business. Now at Duolingo, I’m working on some fun new products that you’ll hopefully get to use someday soon. Tricky product problems are my jam, and my product sense has helped me navigate complex challenges time and time again.
Ask me anything about product, managing product managers, building across diverse product stages, marketplaces, consumer tech, or anything else!
