Meet Sarah: TeamPassword’s New Product Manager
Hello, I’m Sarah, and I’m the newest member of the Jungle Disk team. Born and raised in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, I landed at Jungle Disk through an organization called Venture for America (VFA). In college at Howard University, I was a member of almost every organization that was associated with innovation or entrepreneurship, and I was always on the hunt for ideas and innovations that used technology to solve problems. That passion drew me to startups, and the desire to create opportunity for others through entrepreneurship drew me to VFA. VFA’s mission for its fellows is that they would gain the skills that are needed to operate a small business by placing the recent college graduates at growing startups. The opportunity was perfect for me as it provided a chance to create solutions to build a business and to network with founders and creators.
A position at Jungle Disk was particularly appealing to me for a few reasons. First, the technology company is selling an extremely compelling product in the data security space, a vital and growing industry. Second, Jungle Disk had just acquired a fantastic company, TeamPassword, that was small and autonomous and integrated nicely in the larger suite of Jungle Disk products. I was interested in working for a small team with clear vision for the future of its products, and Jungle Disk gave me both of those through the TeamPassword team. Next, after years studying computer science and a stint as a software developer, I was ready to take the leap into my true interest, and the position in which I believed I could best serve a business, product management. Finally, I was drawn to Jungle Disk because I knew that I could find everything from friends to mentors at the company. I felt at home from the first time I visited the office.
Now, I am elated to be joining a team as talented as the one here at Jungle Disk. This is truly a specially place. I am especially excited to be apart of the growth of TeamPassword. As a Product Manager with TeamPassword, I’ll be making sure that its feature set is grown and tailored to fit the needs of our current customers, to attract new customers, and to align with the vision of the Jungle Disk. Outside of work, I am excited to get to know the great city of San Antonio. I can’t wait to learn more about this historic town, and to find my way to contribute to its beautiful community.
