After studying math and music in college, Karen found her way into the technology industry. She had long admired Quizlet, so she was flattered when they reached out to her to help them with their data. She found the staff to be incredibly passionate about education and jumped at the chance to join the team full-time.
Karen starts her day leading stand-ups with the teams she manages. She then checks-in individually with her engineers about what they’re working on. The rest of her day is spent meeting with teams cross-functionally to ensure that the company’s product development initiatives are aligned, and when she has time, she does a bit of coding herself.
“One of my favorite things about Quizlet is that we’re currently at a size where everybody knows each other and everybody has so much input into the product and really cares about it.”
“I became a manager about two quarters ago and the managers a level up were very supportive of training and setting milestones for me. They really wanted to make sure that I would succeed, and I just really hope to do that now for all the engineers who work with me.”
