Tynker is an SaaS platform that has taught coding to over 60 million kids worldwide. It was an incredibly gratifying place to work, particularly during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, as parents, teachers, and administrators were at the end of their collective wits trying to find a way to keep kids engaged through remote learning. We began offering our software to schools for free and, if we made any kind of a difference, that means a lot to me.
In a small, start-up environment I was part of a marketing team that featured only three people, which meant I was allowed to wear a lot of different hats. In addition to creating the longer-form blogs and articles that were more my background, I was also in charge of our email marketing, putting together hundreds of campaigns during my time there.
