What’s your background? Career aspirations?
I’m a self taught software engineer who’s been working for a few year in the SF bay area. In the past I’ve done mostly Android programming, but I’m working to become a full stack engineer and eventually move towards the manager route.
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
My girlfriend got placed in Austin, TX on her internship for her final year of grad school and I wanted to move with her. It was challenging because all of my professional connections were the the San Francisco bay area. I knew Indeed was big in the Austin, TX area and would help me make introductions to local companies that I would otherwise have difficulty finding.
How did Seen ease your job search?
I liked that Indeed helped me focus on one company at a time. Other job hunting sites can be overwhelming and it can make the process difficult when you are trying to balance many applications at a time.
What excites you most about your new role?
The ability to grow and make a big impact at a small, but quickly growing company.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
Always keep an open mind when considering new opportunities and try to maintain any connections you make during the interview process.
