I worked as a mentor at MountBlue , a coding bootcamp where entry-level developers are trained for 3 months on popular web and mobile technologies with the goal of finding them rewarding software development careers in startups.
This was also the first time I led a group of people and was responsible for developers' success, both during the bootcamp and their initial deployment at our customers' companies. So I improved my project management and people skills in the process by receiving valuable inputs and feedback from founders, mentors and everyone at the company.
During 2020, as the company had to go remote due to Covid-19, I automated many of our manual processes, recruited 100s of candidates and also helped run a problem-solving and computational thinking course for students new to programming who were unable to qualify our interviews. Many of these students who took the prep course were eventually able to pass our interviews.
