Alysha Smith

Recruitment Consultant/Aspiring Frontend Developer, ECOM


Remember being yourself is your strength.

What do you do?

I find Frontend Developers from all around the world, to join tech start-ups in Amsterdam.

Why did you choose this field?

Having a background in business administration, I was always interested in the commercial impact I could have on an organisation, particularly in the field of tech.

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

Relocating to the Netherlands alone and teaching myself how to code.

Why do you love working in STEM?

I love working in tech because the products can help thousands of people within seconds of production. As long as I am contributing to this phenomenon, I look forward to going to work everyday.

Best advice for next generation?

Remember technology itself is not a difficult industry, it is just one of the most intimidating. And being yourself is your strength.
