What’s your background? Career aspirations?
I’m a software engineer with 8 years experience in server, cloud, application and embedded software. I was looking for a shorter commute and market rate pay in Charlotte, NC. I’m comfortable as an individual contributor or a senior role.
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
My previous company was making some changes I did not agree with. They also were paying me below market rate, and outsourced a lot of work which gets frustrating. I tried Seen because it is very easy to set up and the interested companies come to you.
How did Seen ease your job search?
Seen was a lot less work, and also found me opportunities I would have glossed over as I had not heard of the company.
What excites you most about your new role?
I’m excited to get on a well functioning software team using test driven development and good software collaboration tools. Getting paid market rate and having a short commute really helps too.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
Use all the tools available to you, and don’t gloss over companies you haven’t heard of, or industries you haven’t worked in before.
