Sha-Mayn first developed her interest in engineering during high-school, despite an unengaging instructor that led her to drop the course. Luckily, she picked the skill up again later, leading to a 12-year career across the globe working for Google. Now in NYC, Sha-Mayn is determined to empower teachers with the tools to engage and inspire.
When Sha-Mayn isn’t spending her time interviewing prospective recruits to add to the Engineering Team, she’s guiding engineers in their goal of providing the best support to TpT’s user base. That means listening to feedback from teachers and testing changes to ensure a smooth implementation and positive impact for TpT’s 4 million users.
“As a female engineer at Teachers Pay Teachers, I feel very supported. Diversity is extremely important to our company—not just gender diversity, but diversity of all kinds. We try to be really inclusive.”
“The management philosophy is about empowering people. We believe that the people closest to the product are able to make the best decisions.”
