Posted September 06, 2018 07:15:51Georgia Tech grads post-graduation success story may have been more than a college diploma, but the degree she earned from Georgia Tech actually earned her a job with a prestigious company in the tech industry.
A Georgia Tech graduate is set to become a VP of marketing for an online gaming company and will soon have her name on a plaque on the Georgia Tech campus.
She will be joined by other alumni from the school’s engineering department, a former Georgia Tech student who went on to be a co-founder of Reddit and a former Tech alumna.
Tech alum Emily Schulte has been a tech evangelist at the school since 2012, but she was recently hired by the company as VP of Marketing.
She was also a tech consultant for the company, according to TechCrunch.
TechCrunch reports that the position is part of a $3.4 million salary package for the VP position, with a $1.5 million base salary.
Emily Schutze, who graduated from Georgia Institute of Technology with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, has been the Tech alum and co-founding member of the Reddit community since 2012.
She is currently a software engineer at Reddit, where she worked for two years before returning to Georgia Tech to complete her degree.
“I can’t imagine what it’s like to be in a position of responsibility,” Emily Schuette told TechCrunch about her current job.
“It’s just such a great opportunity to get into a startup and work on something really important.”
Schutz said that she is very excited to join TechCrunch’s internship program.
“This is a great company, and it’s just amazing that they’ve found a way to get us through the internship program so that we can do this,” she said.
“We’re just thrilled to be here.
I can’t wait to start my career here.”
Schuettes previous work experience includes working on various mobile game development projects and working on a new project.
She has been on a hiring spree at the company and is looking for a VP role.
Schuets current job is in marketing, and she will be joining the company for two months in March 2018.
She also hopes to pursue a PhD in computer science.
“If I can get this internship, I’ll be doing my PhD,” Schutzes boss said.
The Georgia Tech VP position will be in marketing and she’ll be joining them for two weeks in March.
Emily said that her current position with the company is “a fantastic opportunity” and that she would love to work with TechCrunch in the future.
“The company is incredibly talented, and they have a lot of amazing talent, so I would love it to be my first big opportunity there,” she told Tech Crunch.
“My dream job is to be on a team that does awesome stuff.
I just want to work for a company that does great stuff.”
Emily also told Techcrunch that she hopes to get a job at Reddit because it is “the best place to learn and work.”
The Georgia tech community Emily says that the company was “a great fit” for her.
“They’re very tech-centric, and that is the kind of company I want to get involved with,” she added.
Techcrunk reports that Emily will be working with several other students in the Georgia Institute program.
One of the other candidates is a Georgia Tech alum, who also graduated from the university.
Georgia Tech’s online education program, the Georgia School of Tech (GOTS), is an online learning platform that offers a variety of degree programs, from associate’s to PhD in Computer Science.
Georgia also hosts its own college-level college, the University of Georgia.
Emily is hoping to work closely with the GOTS alumna in the coming months.
Emily says she is excited to be working at a company like TechCrunch that is “very tech-focused.”
“It would be amazing to be part of TechCrunch, and I’m excited to have my name on that plaque,” she shared.
