And I’m a Product Scientist at Medium.
I’ve been at Medium just over 2 years.
I joined Medium because I wanted to work with the product side of a business and wanted that product to be something I believed in. I love reading and believe that the more people are exposed to stories different than their own, the more empathetic and understanding they become. I also was really impressed with the Product Science team during my interview process and how thoughtful they were about using data in an ethical way.
My favorite thing is how varied the work can be. We don’t have a big data team so you get to work through a lot of different problems. I also really like how everyone is very thoughtful about the product we are building. …
And I’m an Engineer at Medium.
I’ve been at Medium for 2.5 amazing years.
Definitely the people. The interview process showed me a lot about how this team cares about making sure you feel included, not just that you can code, which is a lot different than how other companies approach hiring.
It is still the people! Everyone here is open to feedback and continuous improvement, and communicates with empathy. I’ve also been able to learn so much from other engineers here, and grown a lot technically.
Everyone is welcome to bring ideas to the table. Engineers are given the autonomy to make decisions, and give feedback to product and design. …
And I’m on the Finance and Accounting team at Medium.
I’ve been at Medium for 2.5 of the best years of my life. You better believe that.
I joined because I come from a country where the voices of young people are usually suppressed and one should only speak when spoken too (I want to note though that things are changing now), and Medium gave me the opportunity to have a voice (even though I have never written anything on Medium, yet 😬).
I appreciate the freedom to make mistakes and learn from them. …
