We are very proud to announce an awesome addition to the Merit Core Team: Jessica Walters. Jessica is the first member of the Core Team that is not focused on writing code full-time. While Jessica is technical, and writes code in her spare time, her focus at Merit will be on strategy, communications, and product.
Jessica Walters is joining the core team with deep experience in product and operations management, and eCommerce. Jessica’s previous strategic and product role was at FoxCommerce, where she worked side-by-side with Adil, Tony, Eugene, and Max!
In this phase of recruiting, we’ve been particularly-focused on a couple core skills and qualities.
This is a big milestone for the Merit team. As a product-centric organization comprised entirely of engineers, we could not be happier to have someone join the team who can help us think through strategy, communications, and growing the global Merit team. What’s more is that Jessica is not a stranger to code – she’s technical and codes in her spare time. That ensures that we all speak the same language and have a deep appreciation for the challenges and tradeoffs associated with creating great software.
Merit takes hiring seriously. We know that hiring for its own sake can be dangerous – and that’s why we work aggressively to find people that are an excellent fit here. And we’re just beginning. Know someone who would be a great fit here? Would you be a great fit yourself? Don’t hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
