I noticed a couple of items on LinkedIn recently regarding AncestryDNA. Kendall Hulet has been appointed “vice president of product – DNA at Ancestry.com.”
Ancestry.com has also posted a job opening for a “Senior Product Manager – DNA” in San Francisco, California. Perhaps this will be Hulet’s first hire. According to the job description,
The role of Senior Product Manager will be at the hub of the AncestryDNA organization, working closely with world-class scientists, engineers, designers, marketers, and others to create an innovative, science-based family history product like none other. The Senior PM role will focus on creating and improving AncestryDNA product features, and the ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience product managing a rich, interactive online application. Having a strong personal interest in science, technology, and family history will be a distinct advantage – and will bring perspective and insight into this role. This position will report to the product director for DNA, and could be based either in our San Francisco, CA office or our Provo, UT office.
AncestryDNA is led by Ken Chahine, general manager and an Ancestry.com senior vice president.
