Samantha’s Story
Ivy League Learner
Samantha graduated from Harvard and started her career in technology by working for a few San Francisco startups. Though she studied history and science, the one thing she really wanted to learn was how to code—so she taught herself and officially began applying to software engineering roles instead of customer-facing support ones.

Samantha pulls from a diverse set of full-stack skills to help development operations customers use the platform—and easily integrate it into their own products. This means Samantha writes code every day, primarily in Python and Javascript. She also helps perform code reviews for internal team members if she hasn’t identified a new platform feature to add.
