What’s your background? Career aspirations?
I’m a software engineer with BS and MS degrees in computer science. I started my career with IBM, then moved to a startup. I was looking for the next step in my career to be something different, an opportunity to make meaningful contributions to products that help people.
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
The startup I was working for ran out of money suddenly, so it was an unexpected and immediate start to my job search. I was unsure about the best way to find opportunities that fit my skills, and the recruiter I was working with wasn’t sending me enough good options. I hoped Seen would give me more openings that fit what I was looking for.
How did Seen ease your job search?
Seen immediately gave me a bunch of interview opportunities with well-known companies, and the calendar feature made scheduling initial calls much easier than other sites. It was also super easy to accept or decline requests from interested companies.
What excites you most about your new role?
The company has a great culture and an important mission that I care about.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
Definitely use Seen. And make sure to practice those algorithm problems!
