Amelia Schmidt

Amelia SchmidtMy name’s Amelia Schmidt and I’m a UX designer and front-end engineer. I work at a company called Equiem.  I am passionate about getting more women into software development roles and about breaking down stereotypes around software development in general.  I studied arts and thought my career would be in writing and editing. Instead I ended up writing code and building experiences for users. I love what I do, I teach at General Assembly, I’m currently mentoring an intern (an amazing woman from Iran) and I help organise a meetup for female leadership development.
