The truth about careers in tech is that most roles follow the same cookie-cutter patterns. If you don’t fit the mould, or want to forge your own path then things get significantly more difficult. I found this out the hard way. You end up feeling lost a lot. The good news is there are ways to hack the entrenched systems. This blog shares my stories hacking things to work for me. I hope it provides a roadmap for crafting a tech career with the life you really want. Because we all owe it to ourselves to work in a way that is fulfilling to us.
