Employee Spotlight: Jessica Janiuk
Start Date: I joined Spoiler Alert at the beginning of March 2017 and was recently promoted to Senior Software Engineer and Product Team Lead.
Hometown: I grew up in Delafield, Wisconsin, a Milwaukee suburb with about 8,600 residents, but I've been based in Greater Boston for two and a half years.
Education: In 2006, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire with a bachelor's in Communication and a minor in Web Development.
Role description: I wear a number of hats on the Product & Engineering team. At a high-level, I'm responsible for delivering on the product roadmap and product iterations, which entails writing code and building out platform infrastructure. I also mentor team members, and as a certified SCRUM Master/Developer, I help keep the team focused and on-schedule. Outside of my day-to-day, I'm active in the Greater Boston development community, an organizer of GDG Cambridge, and a master of pun delivery.
Why do like working at SA?: I like that we're a mission-driven company focused on solving food waste (and associated problems like climate change), and the team truly feels like a family.
Favorite "distressed inventory" recipe: Easy - making banana bread from aging bananas.
Fun fact! I have fenced for 18 years and recently had a custom sword forged that is inspired by Wonder Woman.
