❤️‍🩹 Hey folks, happy Monday. As community leaders, we would like to inform you we decided to proceed and create a database for whoever got impacted by layoffs. Unfortunately, the number of people in need of a new position is spiking, and we would like to do our small part, and our best, to support all the members of this community and amplify their reach. We would like to ask all of you who are hiring, to please check this Slack channel, our Platform Weekly newsletter and our social channels from this week onward, since we will share the database with you. To all those affected, feel free to add your name to this database: https://airtable.com/shrGdXYoMa0lqBM1V

This is a wonderful idea. Thank you guys for setting it up. Just a thought: will there be a way for people to label their roles in case some are not engineers but work in the industry? People like salespeople, tech writers, marketers, designers, etc.?

Thanks Christina! we did leave the form as open as possible to let everyone and not only engineers the possibility to fill it. We did not think about labelling tech/non tech, do you think it would make sense to put a label?

I think it would, personally. This is a niche industry and so non-tech people do build up a specialist knowledge that their peers outside the industry lack. I also know people looking for sales folks, writers, marketers, etc. and it would make it easier for me to send people their way if I see a match.

@Giulia Guizzardi from employer perspective, can we get search and get access to relevant profiles?
