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.

For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

The focus at CZI is really on being empowered to make your work as impactfully as possible. It is a privilege to have your goal truly be doing your best work and growing in your field and not


There is a lot of overcommunication from CZI central, but it is the result of people working hard to design a better work environment for us. Overall, I feel very lucky to work here.

    Average Interview

    I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (Kerrville, TX) in Dec 2021


    The interview process was fantastic; Everyone that I met, from the recruiter, to the actual team, to leadership, was extremely kind and welcoming. It was pleasant talking with everyone about the role and the possibilities at CZI.

    There was an initial phone screening, then a technical aspect of the interview, and finally a 3-hour Zoom interview with multiple folks on and working closely with the team.

    Tell me about a time that planning failed/you had to adjust your thought process to solve a problem.
