I'm a software product manager who writes code as a hobby.

Currently, I'm VP Product at Cantaloupe Systems. We're the largest SaaS software provider for the vending industry.

At Cantaloupe Systems we put cellular modems inside vending machines, collect data about every sale as well as machine status and alerts, and then crunch the resulting data in our cloud services to help vending operators know which machines need to be refilled and when, what's selling and what's not, who's stealing, which machines are broken, and much more.

I lead a small team responsible for product roadmap, user experience, agile team coordination, and generally keeping the trains running on time.

We're hiring PMs!

comment report authoring workflow for non-technical users
Great answer, thanks for the insight. We haven't decided on tech yet-- I'm going to let UX, performance, and cost drive tech selection. Luckily our data size is relatively small (<1TB) so I suspect we'll end up with some sort of in-memory solution for a backend. For front-end, I'm deciding between a very simple UX that our team can build themselves (trading off reporting flexibility for UX simplicity), or integrating with one of many report authoring environments which will give more report authoring options but may overwhelm users. Tough choice; either option has pros/cons.

comment UX for specifying & showing mutual exclusive pairs in a group
The number of options (and hence the number of possible restrictions the user may add) will vary based on user configuration

comment entering multiple, role-specific contacts on a customer record
great answer. I definitely like the idea of graying out "taken" roles, and setting the primary's role implicitly. thanks!
