Hi! I’m Michelle Lim, and I live in NYC. I’m the Growth Lead at Warp. I also write essays on engineering, society, and film. You can find me at Twitter, Linkedin, Github or email.
I joined Warp as the first software engineer. Currently, I’m running our Growth team, which spans product, data, and marketing. More on the transition here.
I also invest in and support early-stage startups, specializing in growth.
In my free time, I watch films and musicals with friends, swim, and do Pilates. I’m open to advising companies. You can email me at email@example.com.
Stop just using “Frontend” or
“Backend” to describe the Engineering you like
Why the “frontend” vs “backend” engineering axis doesn't map well to engineers’ psychology. And
how using just one division can lead to job mismatches, turnover, and even push some new grad
engineers into product management.
It's Not About the Stars
My essay about why milennials and I love horoscopes unironically.
"I notice that the two main streets running through downtown San Francisco are Mission Street
and Market Street. They run parallel to each other; they never intersect."
