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?

Approves of CEO


- Remote first culture
- Inclusivity & belonging truly matter
- Leaders in a very underserved market segment.
- Well funded Series C scaling like mad = individual opportunity.


- A con for most companies at this stage is the growing pains that can go with maturing your processes to scale. This can also be a plus as it creates lots of opportunity.

    Average Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nylas (United States) in Nov 2021


    I was reached out by an outside recruiter. Then, I had a phone screen with an engineering manager, which asked me about my background, and what I was proud of doing in my current job. Then a few days later, I had a coding interview with an engineer to refactor some code.
    Afterwards, I have final interviews with four different people. Two of were technical and the other weren't. I thought I did poorly on the second technical interview, because I hadn't studied algorithms in the last 4 years.
    The non-technical interviews were straightforward. We basically talked about my experience, my projects, my learning, and my career goal; and they tried to gauge that I would be a good cultural fit to the team.
    A few days later I got an offer that I wanted.
    Special shoutout to the Nylas technical recruiter Sam! She was always happy to answer questions and help in the process!

    The first coding question was to refactor a Slack like application. In terms of the technical questions in the final interviews, the first one was to design software architecture for a notification system, and the second one was to implement an algorithm for message streaming.
