Triplebyte just seemed like a really great opportunity to find companies that I wouldn't otherwise have had access to. I definitely wouldn't have found Even through my own network. And Even ended up being a place that I really liked...Because of my age, people assume a lot of things about me. In that way, being background-blind really helped me because I work as a senior engineer now. And that was not an opportunity I think I would have had without the background-blind process.
