    My experience

    Starting out at Hootsuite was a very intimidating experience at first. Coming from my old co-op job where there were only ~30 people, I could safely say I knew everyone’s name by the first or second week. Needless to say, it wasn’t the same here. However, there was something different about the first few weeks at Hootsuite. Even though the numbers were higher, the space was bigger, and everything seemed a little overwhelming – I still felt like a part of the team. The culture here is so fun and welcoming, and is definitely nothing like what I’ve experienced before… In the best way possible.

    The work I got to do was both exciting and challenging. Working on a product used by millions and making it better (even just a little bit) gave me a feeling of accomplishment I can’t quite put into words. I’ve had the amazing opportunity of working with some intelligent, passionate, and humble people here. I’ll never forget the friends I made and the lessons that I learned.

    Thanks Hootsuite. It’s been rad.
