Later in December, I connected with Dost’s co-founder Sindhuja, not for a job, but for a casual chat to feed my curiosity about early childhood education. That first conversation showed me how decisions at Dost were made based on impact for the end user and not based on what looks good for the organization. I immediately knew it would be a great place for me to get product experience in the education sector. I realized that users, data and a disciplined process were more important for me to gain experience and not whether the company was for-profit/non-profit. I soon joined Dost in a product role.
