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. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

  1. Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Canada
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Application

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

    Interview

    The HR Manager that I had an initial interview with was amazing, super friendly, and very welcoming. She really seemed to understand my skills and experience and was lovely to talk to. Unfortunately, the next interview I had was probably the worst I've ever experienced. 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.
    Interview

    Take me through your portfolio. What do you know about Bitcoin? Those were the only two real questions, otherwise, it was the interviewer listing off about 5 tools/frameworks that a candidate had to be an expert with already. Not sure they'll find a developer that fluent in those technologies for a more entry-level position....

What is the company culture at Blockstream?

...Insanely talented team, super cool projects, great brand value, excellent benefits and perks, high transparency with overall company direction and leadership decisions, good stock options and bitcoin payment incentive program, most individuals are friendly and easy to get along with, culture of openness leaves much freedom when it comes to expressing opinions, most mostly flat structure (you don't need to jump through tons of hierarchy to get your voice heard), flexible work hours and location, internal company calls and "lunch and learns" mean you can learn a ton of about the company and bitcoin industry directly from many of the top experts...
