Our story


In our 20-plus years in product management, we hit a lot of brick walls without the right tools to help us get our increasingly complex jobs done. From messy, incomplete handovers to inefficient and dangerous data and operational silos, we worked long hours to compensate for the chaos and get the results we needed.

Then one day we asked ourselves: why is it that product managers dedicate themselves to making brilliant products that make other people’s lives easier, but lack their own?

Skyjed was born MISSION CONTROL FOR PRODUCT MANAGEMENT ™. Today the platform is used across all industries, from small business to large enterprise. The one thing Skyjed users have in common is that they either own, manage or sell products.

Our people

Our team has a long history of launching and managing products across the globe. Today we’re passionate about making it easier for others to do the same.
