Great question; when I was at a medical startup, I was actually nestled within the People team which is unusual. It worked well because there was innately more understanding and care for what community was trying to accomplish, as well as patience for results. However, I worked CF with product&marketing most and found this to be invaluable. Engineering team on an occasional basis when I needed help with implementation of certain things.

What worked best was creating my asks in advance along with why they were vital for both teams and a prioritized list so that, if all wasn't possible, please at least get to these 1→2 things!
