After completing university, I entered graduate school and worked part-time as an engineer in a design bureau. At first, combining work and study was fascinating, but later I saw very clear limitations on my growth - this did not suit me. The IT sphere, on the other hand, offered tremendous opportunities, which I often heard about from my relatives and acquaintances.
I came to Lineate (at the time - Thumbtack) through the Sunday School of Developers. I showed up to my very first interview with nothing more than a great desire and some basic knowledge in my head that every engineer knows. After almost a year of hard work, I qualified for the Lineate Summer Intensive program and then I got my chance to work on my first Lineate project.
My first project at Lineate was for the School of Medicine for NYU Langone Health. It is a platform for creating and publishing research papers and for learning. Subsequently, I worked on 11 NYU Langone projects, met many people, studied various technologies and observed the development of our customer's business from a front row seat.
I was involved in the qualitative improvement of the entire School of Medicine (NYU Langone Health) platform - we made the site accessible to people with physical or other constraints.
I worked on the project for a relatively short time, but as I took on completely different tasks, studied standards and absorbed a huge amount of information from conversations within the team. And “ a11y” is no longer just a word for me. In all my projects, I try to find the opportunity to implement at least a little functionality that will make life easier for people with disabilities. I have an acquaintance who is blind and I know that it is incredibly difficult for him to use the Internet, and making a simple order in an online store becomes an impassable quest.
Lineate has a unique atmosphere; it is a very comfortable place to work. You are important here. Everyone will talk to you, think about you, help you.
You will be given the opportunity to grow in the direction you have chosen. Projects, courses, conferences, etc. to help you.
There are a lot of cool, motivated specialists around, from whom you can learn endlessly.
Thanks Lesha, for all you do here at Lineate!
