Rachel attended the University of Virginia, where she received a bachelor’s degree in physics and computer science and a master's in math. Rachel started a PhD at MIT but later decided she was ready to transition into industry, and after hearing about Asana at a startup event, Rachel knew exactly where she wanted to be.
Rachel rides her bike to Asana each day and grabs breakfast at the company's cafe before getting to work coding. Rachel collaborates closely with two other engineers, and she typically has a few meetings throughout the day to check in on projects. Rachel usually stays at the office working on software development until just after dinner.
"We're looking for people who are excited about making really cutting edge web applications—and also really excited about working well with other people."
"I find my co-workers often times have a lot of similar interests to me. I love to listen to electronic music and dance, and I'll run into my co-workers all the time all over San Francisco, and that's fun for me."
