I’ve been on the Recruiting team at NerdWallet the past few years focusing on all things technical. I started learning how to code when I worked at a small startup and didn’t have access to many recruiting tools so I set out to build my own. The CTO offered to mentor me on weekends and slowly I learned to write scripts to automate a lot of my day-to- day workflows. Over time I attempted to build more complex scripts and eventually moved into web development. I would describe myself as quite lazy and will always look for a way to automate as much of my work as possible.
