And I’m a Product Scientist at Medium.
How long have you been at Medium?
I’ve been at Medium just over 2 years.
Why did you join Medium?
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.
What is your favorite part about working for Medium?
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.
What is your favorite Medium story and why?
I like almost everything the publication Towards Data Science publishes and have used some things I learned from it on my job. I also loved the series called Timeline of Sounds that describes albums that impacted the author’s life, specially the Kendrick Lamar story.
What is something that you have learned about yourself since joining Medium?
That sometimes going for simple, hacky, and quick answers to a question is better than trying to deliver something fancier, perfect.
