If you don’t code and aren’t yet a founder, it can be daunting and difficult to make a splash in the startup scene. The competition is fierce with thousands of people vying for just a few non-technical roles at viable startups. If you do land the job, it can be easy to pigeon-hole yourself into one area, but it’s the scrappiest, passionate person who is  willing to take on anything that gets ahead. In this talk, Larissa can speak to how the role of the non-technical manager has brought her from customer experience to sales to recruiting to business development and back again and how others can find a way to get noticed by and make an impact at their startups. Larissa can also speak to what in her experience makes a good non-technical hire and how to identify them.
