Growing in the Greenhouse: Spotlight on Customer Success Manager, Scherezad Yusef

The connection between someone’s college major and their career path is not always clear. In fact, in this series so far we’ve already learned about the professional path of art history major-turned front-end developer Ellie Wawrzaszek, psychology major-turned recruiting coordinator AJ Biggers, and English major-turned recruiter Ariana Moon.

For Customer Success Manager Scherezad Yusef, the connection between her undergrad English degree, her Masters in Public Administration, and her current line of work might not be immediately obvious, but it turns out that they’ve all allowed her to explore a topic she feels passionately about: diversity and inclusion.

We caught up with Scherezad to learn how she turned her undergrad fascination with colonialism in literature into a Masters thesis focused on recruiting and retaining diverse students in her graduate school. Also, she reveals how she’s found a way to promote diversity and inclusion here at Greenhouse—in addition to her day job as a Customer Success Manager.

Growing in the Greenhouse: Spotlight on Security Engineer, Lauren “LV” Vicknair

Many sales professionals follow a similar path. It generally involves starting out as a Sales Development Representative, moving up to become an Account Executive, and then going on to becoming a Manager, Director, or VP of the department.

But Lauren “LV” Vicknair’s career trajectory has been anything but typical.

After working in sales for nearly a year, he decided to change directions entirely and joined the Greenhouse Engineering team. After over a year as a QA Engineer—and lots of self-study and extra hours—he recently made another transition to the Security team. We caught up with LV to learn about his early days at Greenhouse, what it was like to switch from sales to security, and why some people insist on calling him “Lorenzo Vespucci.”

Growing in the Greenhouse: Spotlight on Recruiting Coordinator, AJ Biggers

Recruiting Coordinators are the unsung heroes of the recruiting world. They work tirelessly to make sure candidates and interviewers show up at the right place at the right time. They balance busy schedules and navigate different departments’ priorities. And in the case of Greenhouse Recruiting Coordinator AJ Biggers, they do it with an infectiously positive attitude.

Did AJ Biggers always know he wanted to be a recruiter? Nope. His path to this field was a little circuitous. Like a lot of liberal arts students, AJ wasn’t sure exactly what he wanted to do after he graduated. But his first job out of college, working in his school’s career center, helped him realize how much he loved working with people and helping them find their dream jobs (or at least “jobs that they really liked” for those realists amongst us). We caught up with AJ to learn more about his career journey, his path to Greenhouse, and his role as a recruiting coordinator.
