Please introduce yourself and tell us about your role at Gousto.

Hi, I’m Sian. I’m a product designer, currently working in the Menu tribe but I’ll be moving to the Growth tribe shortly to start leading the design for the Beetroots Acquisition squad.

How long have you been at Gousto?

I started in May 2020 during lockdown so my entire Gousto experience so far has been virtual. The onboarding was much better than I expected. I had a package arrive in an Addison Lee with all of my equipment. I liked that the onboarding is split up over the first month so you don’t have one full intense day.

Please introduce yourself and tell us about your role at Gousto.

I’m Kira, and I joined Gousto as a Junior Software Engineer at the end of November 2019.

Can you tell us a little about your journey before arriving at Gousto?

Well.. I wish I could say that I studied Computer Science & always knew what I wanted to do… but I didn’t. I initially took a social sciences route, worked in some customer-focused roles, moved from Russia to Italy, and only after moving to London decided to make this big career move. …
