With a background in environmental science, Tarunya began consulting after graduation. She focused her work in the education field before heading off to business school, where she found herself doing an independent study at Edmodo. Inspired by the product, Tarunya likes to say that she “lurked around” until she was offered a position.
Tarunya starts her day going through her inbox. She then meets with her team for their daily stand-up meeting before carving out some time to review user feedback. In the afternoon, Tarunya meets with her design and tech leads to figure out how they can enhance the Edmodo platform to help teachers better connect with their students.
“I think being able to test out new features really quickly and see the impact on engagement with our users is really powerful.”
“Having a really open and transparent leadership that’s willing to share what happened at the last board meeting or give critical feedback really attracted me to Edmodo—and kept me here for over five years.”
