A former product manager from Pittsburgh, PA, Britney Martin moved across the country to San Francisco, where she quickly tackled the bloc.io Fullstack Rails apprenticeship. Brittany now works as a Rails Support Engineer at Ninefold and recognizes that this job opportunity was possible thanks to a Women Who Code (WWCode) event.
“Upon arriving in San Francisco, I realized that if I wanted to continue to the engineering team, I needed to learn how to code. In 3 short months, I graduated from bloc.io's Fullstack Rails apprenticeship.” Brittany told us as she explained her transition.
Brittany enjoys making time for charitable work, donating her efforts to the non-profit group MEDA, helping people create action plans to realize financial capability for home ownership. In addition, she has taken an active role in WWCode, becoming a voice and a leader in the movement to expand the role of women in the technology industry.
Brittany continues to increase her skill set as an active member of WWCode. She recently volunteered as a guest speaker at one of the organization's events and gained a lot from the experience . “I haven't had a lot of public speaking experience. It was scary talking in front of 100 brilliant women but at the same time it was incredibly empowering to share how far I've come in one year and how I can help others switch their career."
