Design & Engineering

Something I'm proud of at Ashby...

I redesigned and rebuilt the user interface for filters (which is used everywhere!) to make it easier to use while having much more flexibility than it had previously.

Something I've helped the team with...

I'm helping other engineers write more robust and modular CSS through pair programming sessions and creating reusable layout components in our design system.

Most surprising thing about Ashby...

Too many to list. Amazingly competent, thoughtful, and kind team. A sense of calmness throughout my week. Lots of well written documents. And last but not least, very sharp and candid leadership.

Something I'm proud of at Ashby...

Scheduling improvements! It's now much easier for our customers to pick the scheduling method they want.

Something I've helped the team with...

I wrote about the "Jobs to Be Done" framework and to help product engineers think through user problems.

Most surprising thing about Ashby...

The product team structure. I love working with people who go to first principles and think critically about how products are built — the unique team structure of ownership & autonomy at Ashby is a testament to that.

Something I'm proud of at Ashby...

I've integrated an in-app Onboarding page so users can learn about Ashby without leaving the product. Customer Success updates the onboarding guides, which show automatically in the product without the need for any manual work.

Something I've helped the team with...

At Ashby, we run our web applications in different environments. When having several browser tabs open, it's easy to forget which environment you are on without checking the URL. That can sometimes be dangerous! I changed the favicon color per environment in all our web apps so everyone is aware by looking at the browser tab. It also makes it easier to jump between tabs.

Most surprising thing about Ashby...

How Ashby uses the company's culture as a competitive advantage. Ashby is rooted in thoughtful communication, ownership, and effectiveness. Starting from the top, transmitting it to every new hire, and ensuring it keeps being that way. It works.

Design & Engineering

Something I'm proud of at Ashby...

I designed and implemented the ability to multi-select candidates in our pipeline view and perform bulk actions. Customers use it multiple times daily and it saves them a lot of clicks!

Something I've helped the team with...

I revamped our input field components in our design system with a new more flexible API for layout and interactions. Other engineers have been able to quickly create visually pleasing forms and profile pages with minimal effort!

Most surprising thing about Ashby...

I'm surprised at how quickly the market has embraced us as a critical improvement to existing tools. People are really blown away when they see what we can do for them.
