Growing in the Greenhouse: Spotlight on Data Scientist, Andrew Zirm

How did Andrew Zirm end up at Greenhouse? It’s not too off base to say that the stars just aligned for him.

Growing in the Greenhouse: Spotlight on Product Marketing Manager, Jennifer Ho

Cup ramen, mac and cheese, and PB&J are about as gourmet as it gets when it comes to dining options for most college students. But Greenhouse Product Marketing Manager Jennifer Ho refined her culinary palate early.

The popularity of her posts, on everything from the latest restaurant openings in Montréal to food tours in Bangkok and Istanbul, led to lots of fun opportunities, including TV appearances and invitations to exclusive events.

After spending the first few years of her career in product marketing at L’Oréal, Jennifer was hungry for experiences beyond her hometown and set her sights on the Big Apple. We caught up with her to learn about her journey to Greenhouse, her role as Product Marketing Manager, and her top picks for dining in New York City.

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.

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.”
