Hi Amanda! It’s good to have you here, and sorry for the late reply! I’ve been working more remote than usual (went home for my sister’s wedding and a family reunion) and this time of year is always beyond busy.
That’s awesome you’re in the application process! I had been in the orbit of the community, applied for a position and interviewed, didn’t get the position, but then I became a contributor for the flavour I used daily and a year later, here I am! So being familiar with the community, and hopefully being a part of it, is a good thing.
And design is definitely an area where it would be great to have more community participation and input, so if you have any ideas you’d love to see happen, this is the place to be. Again, welcome!
