My Experience

My experience at Hootsuite has been extremely memorable. I was immediately impressed with the culture at the company as soon as I started working here. I’m extremely lucky to be apart of a fantastic team, and have an amazing mentor, making me feel very welcome and involved every step of the way. One key thing I really enjoyed was the openness everyone had to questions, as a result, I was able to learn so much about the projects which I was interacting with. Overall, I have been presented with challenging and meaningful work which greatly helped to improve my backend development skills. At Hootsuite, I feel like every day is a new adventure. Also HootHoliday woohoo!
