Redpoint Office Hours with Tomasz Tunguz and Linda Tong, GM of AppDynamics
From Hypergrowth to Hyperscale—What I Learned Managing Small and Massive Teams
On Thursday, December 3rd at 11:00 AM PT, Redpoint Office Hours will welcome Linda Tong, the GM of AppDynamics.
Linda has experienced it all — both the start-up and big corporation trials and triumphs. During this conversation, we will get her take on the differences between working at smaller companies versus big corporations, and what type of managerial skills are needed for both types of roles.
In 2017 Linda joined AppDynamics as Vice President of Innovation Labs & Product Experience where her design-led leadership style drove the next phase of their product journey and empowered a company culture of curiosity and experimentation. In 2019, she was promoted to Chief Product Officer where she focused on driving the company’s product vision and strategy. In her current role as General Manager, Linda leads all aspects of AppDynamics’ business as part of Cisco.
Prior to AppDynamics, Linda was VP of Product & Innovation at the NFL where she managed the product vision for the digital properties of all 32 clubs and the league. She was also the co-founder of Tapjoy and the former CCO of Nextbit Systems. Earlier in her career, Linda was one of Google’s original Android team members, and helped launch and shape the developer ecosystem for the Android OS in its earliest stages.
Please register to attend here before Wednesday, November 25th. This event will be virtual, and we will collect questions from participants beforehand and try to cover them throughout the discussion. We’ll also answer questions from the audience at the end of the session.
We look forward to welcoming Linda and engaging in great conversation!
