About Me

My name is John Egan. I’ve been working in growth for over 5 years. I’m currently working on the growth team at Pinterest where I’m the Engineering Manager for the Notifications Team which focuses primarily emails, push notifications, and in-product experiences aimed at increasing engagement. At Pinterest I’ve spearheaded several projects that cumulatively have helped add millions of WAUs. Previously, I led the growth engineering team at Shopkick, a cross-retailer mobile loyalty app funded by Kleiner-Perkins & Greylock Partners which was acquired by SK Planet for $200MM. At Shopkick I helped grow the userbase 8x from 1MM users to 8MM users primarily through invites, geofencing, & push notifications.

I love talking about Growth, and here is a list of a few talks I’ve given with links to a few of the videos.
