What’s your background? Career aspirations?
I previously worked at a small company working on Ruby on Rails applications. I wanted to continue down the technical career path of being a lead or senior software engineer.
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
I’d been at my previous company for six years and felt like I wasn’t learning as much as I wanted to. It was frustrating how I was spending so much time and energy talking with recruiters before knowing what the job entailed and whether there was mutual interest between us. I felt like I wasn’t spending my time efficiently.
How did Seen ease your job search?
Seen gave leads to companies that were already interested and included enough company info for me to determine whether I was interested in them. It also included a salary range up front which not all places do and which I appreciated.
What excites you most about your new role?
Pike13 had a clear roadmap for the next few quarters and the projects are impactful and interesting.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
Do interview prep consistently (I used LeetCode) and have mock interviews with people. There are websites to connect you with people to do mock interviews with if you’re not comfortable asking friends.
