  • It’s okay to be scared | Startup Life
    software developer before nor I had any experience about startups other than hanging out at Startup Sauna and Boost Turku So it was pretty intimidating to move to San Francisco and become a fellow alumnus with the forementioned people I can now admit I had no idea what IPO meant what was churn or how to do a code review the first day I started at Chartio And yeah it was scary I know there are others like me wondering if they should apply People who know how to make things happen but are bit afraid of not knowing the lingua and processes used People who might be little worried about moving alone to the other side of the world for the first time People who think that it s not worth taking the leap I want to say a few words of encouragement it s okay to be scared It s okay not to know everything when you start everyone is a beginner once Asking for clarification and help is the most important thing for an intern to do It s your job and responsibility not only to yourself but to the company for the first few weeks or months to ask questions The fact is people don t expect you to know everything but to be able to learn them fast enough And especially in Silicon Valley the culture is very welcoming for asking questions No one has ever said to me I don t have time or I don t want to to answer your questions in San Francisco And you ll never be alone if you re a Startup Life intern The community of current and previous interns and the extended Finnish family there is amazing I didn t know anyone when I went there and

  • Startup Life from Sanja: move fast, break things | Startup Life
    ways by myself to the new places to find cafes shops My company SEVEN Networks is working on Mobile Technologies Thus from Caltrain where most of the people are riding using their laptops kindles or phones to the work place I am constantly surrounded by technology And I love it as for an IT girl it feels the right place to be And I am constantly learning Working here is different and good the employees are m uch taken care of Though when it comes to a deadline nobody is questioning the need to come on weekend to the office But on the way you can enjoy healthy food of California lots of salads fruits fish sport terrains just outside your office and sunny days Meeting people to hang out with and friends also come so naturally and easy Pleasant comments from the strangers on the street or chatting with a person on the train are just normal things And btw those people could be VPs of some company you admire PhDs from Stanford or PE who used to work for NASA past 10 years And as a part of StartupLife you will also have your own batch of people
