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?

    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at First Factory (San Jose, San Jose) in Oct 2022


    Applied in Costa Rica. These guys agreed to continue the hiring process after I applied, but wanted me to record and send a 3 minute video explaining why I was "excited to join the company". I replied saying I did not wish to record a video and provided the rest of the information they asked via email. Next day, they reply to me with a template rejection email saying I didn't have "enough experience".
