I’m Amandah - Founder & Editor of Ways We Work - a digital publication focused around telling stories and first-hand accounts of how people do meaningful work.
The site originally started 2 years ago as a blog where I would do quick Q & A’s with professionals in all different industries. Since then the interviews have evolved to be more in depth and feature professionals in creative and tech industries. Almost a year ago my good friend Matt Quinn joined the project as a partner. Together we started creating team features with some incredible teams like Facebook, Pivotal Labs and many others.
On March 18th the site is turning two and next week will also mark our 100th interview, which will be with Geoff Teehan, Design Director at Facebook. On Monday we’ll be publishing a feature on the design team at Medium as well.
Currently I wear a lot of hats, Ways We Work has quickly become my full-time gig but it doesn’t yet pay a full-time salary. Every week I’m doing interviews, editing, writing, promoting the pieces, contacting sponsors, and more recently working on the next iteration of the site. On top of that I do some freelance work so I can feed myself.
I’ve learned a lot, about a lot of things in the last two years and I’m happy to answer questions about anything! Throw them at me!
