Hi, Hashnoders, I'm excited to announce that I've joined the Hashnode team as a Growth Manager. I’m very much looking forward to connecting with you and contributing to the community! 🎉
Who am I?
I've been in love with technology ever since I first played with a computer as a preschooler. So far, I've worked as an English teacher, translator, marketer and content manager, all along combining my love for sharing knowledge, communication, and technology. Most recently, I've worked on helping the Semaphore team engage and grow their CI/CD platform user base. My favourite part of the job was working on many articles and an ebook that have helped hundreds of thousands of developers get better at building and shipping great products and code. Back in 2016, I joined Hashnode to better understand how we can contribute to the community. Little did I know that I would be joining the Hashnode team in a couple of years!
This is me, talking at the local Women in IT conference I helped organize:
In my free time, you'll find me reading one of the 600+ books cluttering my bookshelves, writing, drawing, playing board, RPG and video games, traveling, hanging out in online communities, contributing to Goodreads, learning, mentoring, attending, speaking at or organizing conferences to contribute to the community, as well as planning to start writing that blog this year, I promise.
This is me with a friend, pretending not to be lost in Kyoto, Japan:
How did I join the Hashnode team?
A couple of months ago, I felt like I could use a new challenge that would allow me to keep contributing to the community, while also growing as a professional.
I had a couple of offers from amazing companies on the table, and after careful deliberation I've decided to join Hashnode, primarily because of our shared values, but also because of the opportunity to work again with my dear mentee and comrade Milica and the rest of the smart, creative and kind Hashnode team.
What will I be doing at Hashnode?
When I joined the Hashnode team Slack, I jokingly said that my job looks a little bit like this:
Growth is often seen as something mysterious that helps startups skyrocket. But what does it really mean? Well, things I'll be working on range from getting to know Hashnoders and what you care about, collecting and analysing your feedback, experimenting with changes that will make it easier for you to learn, share and connect on Hashnode, optimizing new Hashnoders' experience to ensure that they get value out of Hashnode as quickly as possible, to making sure that we're doing the right things to attract more amazing developers to the platform.
I’m very much looking forward to connecting with all of you and contributing to making Hashnode even more awesome. See you around! ☀️🎉🚀
