I was worried about my job. I was unreasonably worried that if I took the full time — because the tech world moves so fast, and Github moves so fast — I worried that if I stayed away the whole time, when I came back I wouldn’t be any use.
Sara Pyle is a Supportocat at Github with a 15-month-old daughter.
We talked about the perils of going back to work too early and how her leave plan pivoted, her strategies for working remotely when baby is in the next room, and the status of soft skills or identifying as a woman in tech when you’re not an engineer.
