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?

The monthly quota can be challenging, so be prepared to prospect a lot. It is definitely a grind to meet that expectation.

  1. Senior Frontend Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Questions were mainly just about my experience with the technology. Issue happened after the fact when they wanted a portfolio of my work including source code, which I cannot give from my former company. I sent a well thought out email with screenshots showing my work, explained I cannot give them source code, then they ghosted me. Extremely unprofessional to not even respond to a well thought out email. If side projects are a requirement for the job, the portfolio of work should have been the first step in the interview process to save us all time.

Culture
After launching WP Engine's Core Values in 2013, it was time for a refresh. As we look to the future through that lens of togetherness, examining who we are now and who we aspire to be, we felt It was time to revisit our shared values that inform our sense of direction, and evolve our guiding principles as we head into a new phase of growth and maturity. We convened a dedicated committee of culture leaders from across the organization, broken into four teams, which each provided a strong, consistent vision of values imbued with ethics, concern for our customers, intentionality and craft, community engagement, diversity and inclusion, and growth and stability. Through meaningful discussions and many late nights, we reorganized, combined, and refined the output from these teams to then create our five new Core Values, which will continue to serve as the framework for our decisions and the way we hold ourselves accountable going forward. These Values define us, inform our decisions and are what we stand for.
