Jessica Shirazi joined our Boston office in March of this year and she is a key player in keeping things on track and running smoothly in that office. Jessica was drawn to Talener because she felt it was a great fit for her personality given that it was filled with driven people that are all trying to make a difference in the technology industry. One of her favorite things about working here is being able to keep her office motivated and happy (she’s even been known to bribe them with candy!).
Jessica believes that Boston is a city of opportunity and is exceedingly proud to call it home. Having recently been looking for a job in Boston, she does have a unique perspective on the job market there and said, “It was extremely difficult not only for me but for all of my friends to be recent college graduates in the job market. Luckily, with encouragement from friends, family, and recruiters, I landed a job with Talener!”
Outside of Talener, Jessica enjoys spending time with her “abnormally large, continuously growing, outrageous” family, and says “there is never a dull moment in the Shirazi family!” Jessica is known in the Boston office for putting up inspirational quotes, so we’ll leave you with one of her favorites:
Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering—because you can’t take it in all at once. -Aubrey Hepburn
If you are looking for a development job in Boston or you are a current Boston client, please feel free to say hi to Jessica on your next trip to our office!
