Amalia got a new job as the first female engineer at a startup called Candidate!

Amalia says:

Candidate is trying to change how hiring works. Their slogan? Refer your network. They get hired. You get rewarded. MEANING I could recommend any of my engineer boss bitches to candidate, they then help find them a job, when the engineer boss kween gets hired, the company shes going to is happy, and I’m happy too because I legit get 3k or something.
