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?

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Cockroach Labs (United States)


    While their interview process was very involved (5 different 1 hour interviews with leaders of 5 separate departments), I truly enjoyed getting to know leadership through these calls. Made me feel like the team was taking very careful consideration over who they wanted to add to their marketing team - which I appreciate.
