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?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Samsara (United States) in Jul 2022

    Interview

    A Samsara recruiter reached out a couple weeks after I applied to have a short discussion about the role. Spoke with them the next day. The following day, the recruiter set up a time with the hiring manager for the following week.

    I had an hour long talk with the hiring manager, mainly discussing the role, my experiences. A few behavioral type questions were slipped in. It was pretty relaxed. The hiring manager was kind of new to the company, and we were looking up stuff about the company together.

    The recruiter set me up with a member of the team to do a 45 minute live coding screen. You could pick the language you wanted to use. It wasn't a LC type question, which was nice. Signed an NDA, so I can't get into the specifics of the coding question.

    They wanted to move forward to the final stage, which was a "virtual onsite" interview, consisting of 3 sessions which included another live coding, system design, and behavioral interviews.

    Unfortunately, they hired someone else for the role while I was waiting for the onsite interview. Luckily, another group within Samsara wanted to move forward with the interview process.

    I talked with that hiring manager but realized I wasn't really interested in the role and withdrew my application.

    Everyone was really nice and helpful throughout the process. Good experience. The whole process took about 1.5 months.
