After studying finance at George Mason University, Gulnara started her career in banking. Unsatisfied with the work, she began teaching herself how to code. She was immediately hooked and began looking for software engineering jobs. She found 33Across through a contract position, but it didn’t take long before she was offered a full-time role.
Gulnara likes to start her mornings with a workout and a smoothie. Energized for the day, she then settles into her home office for a daily standup with her team to discuss what everyone is working on. Once the meeting wraps up, she spends the majority of her day doing what she loves most—coding.
“The biggest perk at 33Across is the fact that you have a lot of freedom to choose the tools you work with to build different projects, and you have the support of other team members who are always excited to help.”
“I review code for senior developers and I give strong critiques and they're open to hearing it, which is really amazing because they have many more years of experience than I do.”
