Benjamin Wirtz - Head of Product and Growth.jpg

Benjamin has been creating, managing and growing digital products for over 8 years and is passionate about developing companies and people. Benjamin is a 3x startup founder and ex-Senior Product Manager at Atlassian, where he took JIRA Core from initial research and strategy building to launch.

Having gone from coding his own apps to growing products at public companies, Benjamin has experience in virtually all aspects of creating products and growing companies. His own startups took him from B2B to B2C, mobile to web, and marketplaces to enterprise SaaS.

Benjamin's last startup, a fully automated CRM solution, has received investment from world-class startup accelerators like Seedcamp, the UK's equivalent to Y-Combinator when it comes to reputation and network, and the enterprise-focused Citrix Startup accelerator. Throughout this journey, Benjamin has collaborated with small and large organisations, including PwC, Barclays, Westfield / Scentre Group and Citrix.

Benjamin is now teaching Product Management at General Assembly and helping companies to take their products and growth to the next level. He holds a BSc in Information Systems and an MSc in E-Business & Innovation and is secretly addicted to salty liquorice, but keeps himself in check by racing on yachts around Sydney regularly.
