• Hello, I am Noémie

    Currently working remote from Nantes, France


    I work as a Product Manager at Companion, where I use mixed research methods to guide our product development. On any given day I can be found putting together wireframes, touching up a PRD, or running a usability test or survey study.


    I was born in France and grew up in the countryside surrounded by cats, dogs, and horses. I studied psychology and animal behavior in college and grad school. Now in San Francisco, I combine AI, hardware, software, and animal behavior in a delightful product for pet parents.


    Ping me at noemie.a.guerin@gmail.com


    PS: Some of the topics I like to nerd about are equine behavior, indie music, and sustainability.
