Emma is great! I was super excited to sit down and chat with her and ensure her 15 minutes of fame were as bright and sparkly as her awesome personality! Emma has been an Uberflipper for almost two years and is a strong, inspirational female developer that we are beyond lucky to have on our team!
Now time for our interview!:
Tell me about your role at Uberflip:
I am a Software Developer! I am pretty new to this team, although I have worked at Uberflip for almost two years. I started out on the onBrand team and recently moved over and this is a bit more challenging and more development focused.
What is your star sign? And what qualities are really true to who you are?
I'm a Scorpio. I was born on the first day of the Scorpio sign so I actually feel like I am more of a Libra though. A lot of the qualities of a Scorpio are very intense and vengeful and she doesn't feel like she relates to any of those (and we totally agree, Emma!)
Libras are more diplomatic and fair and are also very social. So we're thinkin' Emma is more of a Libra at heart. They are friendly, alert, balanced and outgoing!
What is your favourite part about working at Uberflip?
The people. (she thinks basically everyone says the people!) but that's just how she feels. (but seriously, we have the best team ever!)
The company is great if you want to grow, and there's a lot of room to take things in different directions. She thinks that you truly get what you put in here and that her second favourite thing is the people (hehe ;)
Do you have any tips for someone joining the team?
There's nothing wrong with being frank about wanting to work here. Everyone at Uberflip is so open to hearing from new people! Find someone on Twitter or LinkedIn and connect with them and ask them for coffee. You can learn more about the company if you really want to work here there is nothing wrong with putting it out there and getting involved!
What is your favourite snack offered in the Uberflip kitchen?
Do bagels count as a snack?! (the answer is yes, and they are a huge hit here! #carbs)
What emoji best describes you?
She can be a variety of different ones throughout the day, a lot of the time any of the girl emojis. The over the head one and one arm up one (see photo above!) and the one where she is coding *obvi*
If you could choose one song to really pump you up, what would it be?
Any song by the Born Ruffians! but if she had to pick one song by them it would be "Fade To Black". Her liking The Born Ruffians is totally a thing and is def part of the Emma Koza brand.
Working at Uberflip is...a lot of fun!
