BreakLiner Uliana Sokolova landed a Brand Partnerships role at Faire! Here is part of her story:
“I’m originally from Ukraine. My mom is still in Kyiv and other family members are in the south of the country. As you might imagine, the past few months have been incredibly difficult. My husband served in the US Army. We’ve moved quite a bit. It took me a while to transition into American culture, and I had to find my way with work, too. When we relocated to the Bay Area, I started reaching out to recruiters and putting myself out there in a million ways to find a career in tech.
My husband learned about BreakLine from someone in his veterans’ club at the University of California Berkeley.
The BreakLine team saw that I was willing to work hard and they introduced me to Faire. From the very first meeting, I knew I could thrive with this company.
I wholly believe in this mission—helping brands get into more retailers across the globe. Faire really cares about their employees, and the team wants to see me grow. I honestly didn’t realize a company could be so supportive! Especially during this time of upheaval and uncertainty in my home country, it means the world to me.”
