In the spirit of introductions, here’s a bit about me!

  • Im Aaron, one of the founding team members of ZenHub. In the early days of the company, I was responsible for figuring out our initial strategy on how we brought ZenHub into the market.

  • These days I spend most of my time working cross functionally with our marketing, customer success, and sales teams. I also partner with our product team to help guide our long term product vision.

  • I’m based in Vancouver, BC (Canada, Eh?) but am originally from Edmonton, AB. I moved to Vancouver to join the early team at Axiom Zen—the innovation studio that was originally behind ZenHub.

Jumping in here to introduce myself, as well.

Hi, I’m Jess! I’m from a suburb about 20 minutes outside of Vancouver, Canada. I’m the Content Marketing Lead here at ZenHub, and I’ve been around for about 6 months. It’s been such an exciting journey already. It’s so inspiring to work with people who genuinely care about and believe in a product. (And I’m not just saying that!)

Fun fact about me… I have 3 doggos! River, Baker and Bowie. :dog:

I’m really looking forward to connecting with all of you and learning from your experiences working on product-focused teams. I’ve been working on agile teams for about 3 years, so I have a lot to learn from all your insights and wisdom!

Hi everyone, I’m Thabang! I joined ZenHub a few weeks ago as the VP, Marketing.

I’m originally an engineer by trade and have worked in a variety of R&D, product management, and marketing roles over the years. Before ZenHub, I was at the Eclipse Foundation, which is one of the world’s largest open source foundations, where I was responsible for global developer community development and engagement.

I work closely with Jess, Aaron, and the rest of our team to support our great community. I’m looking forward to learning from and collaborating with all of you!

Hi everyone! Nice to meet you all, I can’t wait to interact with y’all on here. My name is Chaissan and I’m a marketing coordinator and copywriter here at ZenHub. Most of my work revolves around creating and editing content across various platforms. I’m so excited about everything that’s happening at ZenHub, and am so grateful to be part of such a supportive and driven team. Here are a few fun facts about me:

  • I’m from Vancouver kind of. I’m actually from a village on the very edge of the Greater Vancouver area with a population of about 1,300 people. :houses:

  • I absolutely love travelling, and have been fortunate enough to travel to quite a few countries. Feel free to ask me about it! :flight_departure:

As a recent university graduate, I’m still fairly new to Agile and project management, so I can’t wait to learn from all of you here on the Community.

Hey all, :wave:
I just wanted to drop in and introduce myself; I’m Julie (pronouns are she/her) from the Customer Success Team, and I have been with ZenHub since April, 2020.

Part of my role as a Customer Success Manager is to really help our customers, well, be successful! And that doesn’t mean just with ZenHub either! My goal is to drive kaizen (that means continuous improvements or change for the better) with the teams I get to work alongside :grinning:

If we’re ever on a video call, you might get to see a glimpse of my cat in the background! Here’s a photo of PB waiting very patiently for you to pop in and say hello!

Look forward to chatting with you in the community! :blue_heart:

Hello! :wave:

I’m Chris, a software engineering lead at Emory University in Atlanta, GA! I work with two teams here that are both on Zenhub, and it’s been a great tool for tracking progress and organizing our sprints.

I also have some nosey co-workers that sometimes like to jump in on my video calls. This is Penny (dog) and Chloe (cat). Nice to meet you all!

Hi I’m Mikkel from Denmark. Developer at a educational publishing company. My team has switch to Zenhub. And are very happy working closer to the issues and github. Now the work is to convince the other teams to make the shift. But that should be easy - who can say no to Zenhub :wink:

Do not have a picture of my team-mates. Would have embeded a photo of my puppy, but the text-editor will not allow images.

Hey all, I’m Laura! I’m on the Product Team at ZenHub.

It’s been a busy year for us but a few of the features I’ve worked on are Planning Poker, our new Sprint & Productivity Insights, and improvements to Issue-PR linking.

So much of our product comes from you: your ideas, your thoughts, and your feedback. And with this community space, we can stay even more connected. I’m looking forward to all the great conversations!

Keeping with the pet-theme of the thread, here’s my adventure buddy, Penny. When we’re not in the Vancouver, B.C. office you’ll usually find us hiking in the beautiful North Shore mountains.

Hello folks.
I’m relatively new to ZenHub (and github, really), 9 months.

I like how it is a layer on top of a used platform, so that we don’t fall into the trap of repeating the same information on multiple systems.
The choice of software of this nature can be a contentious issue, and a source of humour for the team. We sometimes lament with our managers that a lot of find-and-clicking is required to get things done. We all look forward to improved workflows for users of all kinds.
