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.

At What Age Is It Too Late to Change Careers?

I'm a big believer that there is no growth in comfort, and there is no feeling of discomfort quite like knowing that you need more out of your career. The dread of spending the next 15 to 20 years doing the same thing while knowing that you want something else feels like a betrayal to yourself.
