Find Melissa on Twitter and LinkedIn.


Ask anyone at Greenhouse what they love about this company and you’re likely to hear the same answer: the people! In this new series, we’ll be getting to know some of the people who make Greenhouse such a special place to work.

There was a very clear moment when Ellie Wawrzaszek’s life changed. It wasn’t when she moved to Turkey after college or the two years she spent in Austria after that. It wasn’t even when she made the decision to move to New York City. No, her life-changing moment took place in a 7th grade classroom, when she saw that 13-year-olds could learn to code.

Ellie had been fascinated by software development, but felt intimidated to pursue this mysterious subject. Seeing firsthand that 7th graders could do it, she decided she couldn’t make any more excuses about her own capabilities. And she didn’t! Ellie is now working at Greenhouse as a front-end developer. We caught up with Ellie to learn more about her career journey, her path to software development as a woman, and her role at Greenhouse.
