Nothing worth doing is ever simple, right? Careers are very similar - especially if your journey is not so linear and requires significant changes, challenges, or discomfort. But, with the right attitude and resources around you, anyone can be successful as a woman in tech, no matter what background or stage of career you are in!
Please join us for our next event as we spotlight a few team members who have found great success in navigating a career which landed them as Developer Advocates @ Elastic. Both Lisa Jung & Jay Miller have very unique backgrounds, and not ones that would necessarily be seen as the "standard career path" into software development. They will share what they've learned along the way, what contributed to their success, what mistakes they've learned from, and how they've supported others who made a career pivot along the way.
- Lisa Jung loves geeking out over data and teaching developers how they can search, analyze, and visualize data. Her journey to landing her dream job has been an unconventional one. After dedicating her early career to reproductive neurohormone research, she ventured into the business development and product marketing side of tech. During this time, she became so inspired by the impact that developers had and decided to become a full stack developer (JS & Ruby) herself.
- Jay Miller is a multipotentialite, a person who has many different interests and creative pursuits in life, He enjoys finding unique ways to merge his fascination with productivity, automation, and development to create tools and content to serve the tech community.
Elastic.co, the company behind the Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash) helps people explore and analyze their data differently using the power of search.
