She’s a gamer, loves a good puzzle, and is a code mentor volunteer.
But most importantly, she works at RESAAS.
This is Meet the Team - a series that will get you up close and personal with those that work at RESAAS.
Q: What is a typical day like for you at RESAAS?
Q: What is your favourite DevHack project to date?
My favourite DevHack project has been revamping how our referrals feature worked. We did research with agents, talked with them, and had a designer create mocks for us. This was a DevHack that made it to production. Previously, the form just said ‘referrals’. Now, it is a much clearer, as ‘referrals’ and ‘buyer needs’ each have their own forms.
Q: How would you describe the work culture at RESAAS?
I think that there is a lot of creative freedom, autonomy and empowerment. I find myself having a lot of opportunities to decide on what I want to work on, as well as how I approach and deal with these opportunities.
Q: If you could be any character in a TV show/movie, who would you be and why?
I would want to be Darth Vader. I want to know what it’s like to own an evil empire, but perhaps without rebels coming after my head! Plus, it would also be fun to have the force!
Q: If you were stuck on a deserted island, what is one thing that you would want to have?
I would want to have Bear Grylls with me, since he is someone who can teach me how to survive. It’s better than giving me a survival 101 book!
Q: If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Probably teleportation. I have friends in the different cities that I have lived in, and it’s difficult to meet them now that I’m here in Vancouver. It would be nice to meet them whenever I’d like without having to take a plane!
