Matt gets a lot of pleasure from helping people work through their challenges. He currently does that as a senior manager responsible for Localization & Translation at Etsy, on his path of learning to manage managers. Prior to Etsy, Matt worked as an infrastructure and test engineer and as a QA Manager where he caught the leadership bug. He occasionally writes about what he’s learned on his website mattnewkirk.com when he isn’t exhausted from parenting his two awesome children. Matt recently returned from six months of parental leave and is always game to share his journey with you.
