I was a young mom of an almost 3-month-old infant. Despite the sleepless nights, the constant diaper changes, and breastfeeding, I was thrilled when, in November 2017, I landed myself a new opportunity: VP of Engineering at Metadata.

  • How I overcame my own imposter syndrome to build the product that had higher Customer Satisfaction scores than teams with 5x the headcount and 10x the funding
