And I’m an Engineer at Medium.
How long have you been at Medium?
I’ve been at Medium for 2.5 amazing years.
Why did you join Medium?
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.
What is your favorite part about working for Medium?
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.
What does your collaboration with Product / Design look like?
Everyone is welcome to bring ideas to the table. Engineers are given the autonomy to make decisions, and give feedback to product and design. We are consistently iterating!
What is your favorite Medium story and why?
I really enjoyed a lot of the stories from our recent collaboration with Roxane Gay, Unruly Bodies. Medium also has a lot of technical publications which are very informative.
What is something that you have learned about yourself since joining Medium?
I’ve learned to be more expressive with my thoughts and opinions, because it is valuable for me and also for my team.
