  1. How did you discover The Mom Project?
    I discovered The Mom Project through a friend while I was living in Japan.

  2. What was the application and job searching process like?
    Using The Mom Project platform for job searching and applications was incredibly straightforward and user-friendly compared to other platforms. The streamlined process made it much more enjoyable to submit applications for various positions.

  3. Can you describe the interview and hiring process?
    My hiring journey at Sensiba began with an initial phone screen with the HR manager, followed by two Zoom interviews with individuals at various levels, from Senior to Partner. My experience was somewhat unique, as I was first hired by Sensiba as a contract employee through The Mom Project for six months. I then transitioned to a W2 employee with Sensiba. Overall, the entire process was very smooth from start to finish.

  4. Tell us about your career journey. How long have you been at Sensiba?
    I began my career at Ernst & Young (EY) as an audit associate in 2018, where I worked for a year and a half before relocating to Japan. After settling in Japan, I spent two years in the finance department of the United States Air Force (USAF). Eventually, I discovered Sensiba through The Mom Project.

    Sensiba is a fantastic workplace because they genuinely care about their employees and go above and beyond to support families. I appreciate how they encourage balancing family time with fulfilling work commitments.

  6. What advice would you give to other moms interested in The Mom Project? 
    My advice to others is to take the leap! The Mom Project is an excellent resource, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without their support. Thanks to TMP, I found Sensiba, and it has positively transformed my life and my family’s life.
