What’s your background? Career aspirations?
I’ve worked most of my live in educational technology and publishing, with some time in e-commerce and search. I’ve always wanted to work in a large technology-focused company that provided a valued service to its customers.
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
I started to look when the company I was working for had been sold twice, and the culture and environment had shifted. I did my normal “enable resume” on a number of job sites when Facebook suggested Seen randomly one day.
How did Seen ease your job search?
What intrigued me about Seen was the concept of matching and companies reaching out to you. It greatly eased the stress levels and difficulty of interviewing knowing there is already interest. I was also impressed by the tools Seen provided to facilitate the interviews.
What excites you most about your new role?
I interviewed as a software engineer and was offered a management position with direct reports and hands-on contribution. It’s exactly what I wanted, and the opportunities for growth are incredible.
