Keynote:  Magera Moon Holton, Senior Product Designer at Etsy
Program: Creating meaningful work: what to look for when searching for your perfect job. 

magera-moon-holton (2)Magera is a product designer currently based in Brooklyn, working for Etsy. She collaborates with her team to create clean and consistent user experience. When not crafting code or pushing pixels, she prefers to be behind a camera.

Fresh out of college and looking for a job, Magera had no idea what she wanted out of a job.  She thankfully lucked out and had the opportunity to work at a variety of companies: a small startup of only 10 people, freelancing and working with a variety of clients, and now working at Etsy and seeing the company grow from 160 to almost 600 people strong. Through all of these different work places, there were pros and cons to all of them, which she will talk through to help you keep in mind what matters, and doesn’t matter when looking for your ideal work environment.
