Margo currently serves as Head of Product at Transmute, an Austin-based tech start-up building user-managed identity infrastructure. She is also the creator of Nimble Mind, a product consultancy helping organizations align impact and revenue in the design of their products and programs. Previous roles include Director of Community Product and Partnerships for Aunt Bertha, as well as research and fellowship roles with UnLtd USA (now Techstars Impact) and the City of Austin.
