Notes and questions in preparation for HelloSign Director of Product Management job interview

Product Critique

App
  • Demo is a good idea
  • No way to clear a signature without leaving screen
  • Navigation (not actions) unclear.  Back button is not visible.  Send is only nav item.
  • Where are my documents?
  • Idea:  Using OCR (optical character recognition)to prefill fields.  “Signature” “Date” are the obvious ones.
Web
  • Straight forward, not like docusign
GDocs
  • Great integration
Used docusign extensively to buy my house
It’s not very intuitive.  Still a learning curve.  They let the complexity out of the bag.  Worse when signature requests are not business initiated.
I moved to using SignNow.  Interface is much more consumer friendly.  Drawing a signature is actually easier and your signature actually looks like your signature instead of some ugly chicken scratch.

Why HelloSign?
Technologies that help consumers interact with businesses more seamlessly.  So much complexity in modern life, that if one task can be made more blissful, then that’s a victory.
Biggest opportunities are seized by the smallest most nimble competitors because the biggest 800 lb gorillas are so entrenched in their current business.
