Oct 9, 2018

I couldn't create a blind account since it needs work email and that's exactly what I am trying to get πŸ™‚, so apologies for sending from my spouse's account.

I am parent of a special needs kid - I worked for 3 years before I came to US. Had kid, started masters and then we found out that he was special needs. It was most challenging phase of my life.

I paused my studies for a year, then resumed slowly and graduated πŸŽ“ this spring summa cum laude - MS in computer science. I am raring to get back to work and I am looking for software engineer referral in Bay area. Please pm me (I exhausted all my 10 pm for the month) and I can send out my resume to you.

I have been leetcoding for a few months now and confident of acing interviews. Also, I am indeed worried about work life balance. Please also let me know how is wlb in your company.

Oh and if you are a special needs mom, let's connect. I would love to know what you do to manage your unique challenges!

Thank you for your referral πŸ™‚!
Location: Bay area.
