As we all know, the world of tech is constantly changing. Each day brings a new adventure in learning and a new way of thinking about how you approach your work. I love that since every day brings a new set of challenges and adventures.
I think it's common for people to assume that all tech jobs require a knowledge of HTML or coding in general. Although these are great skills to have, they aren't the base of every job in the field. Their are plenty of marketing and business analyst jobs in the tech space, and they continue to evolve daily.
I lead a team that has a cross functional group of members. From designers to developers, I make sure the projects we create flow properly and effectively. We work on technical websites, primarily in the B2B space.
