After her military service she completed a bachelor’s degree in computer science and started working in her 3rd year - the rest is history. She actually did not find DigitalOcean, they found her. When she moved to the US from Israel, she had no connections, so she invested a lot of time and efforts in building her LinkedIn profile and connections. This payed off as both Digital Ocean and former employer, VMware, discovered her online!
