Technical Account Manager
Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts.

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Blockstream (Canada) in May 2021

I interviewed with a manager who was unfriendly, didn't know how to interview properly, wouldn't turn their camera on, and was actually looking for someone with different skills than what was listed on the job description. Basically there was a major disconnect between HR and the Engineering team which is not great. They were looking to backfill the position I was applying for so it really seemed like someone left their company abruptly. I am not struggling to see why.

Not sure they'll find a developer that fluent in those technologies for a more entry-level position....Answer Question
