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.

"So Many Talented people.."

Jan 12, 2023 - Support Engineer
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO


Sonatype seems hellbent on collecting talented engineers, sure they may have missed the mark with me ha, but this is without question the most experienced and gifted group of engineers I've ever


I have no complaints but Ill echo some that have been shared with me about the benefits not being up to snuff, it's not a concern for me but your mileage may vary.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sonatype (Canada) in Jan 2023


    I had received an invite to interview, had them reschedule once and then cancel the day before the interview, as such I don't believe they are very appreciative of people.

    There were no questions asked.
