My name is Danie Banks and I am a self-taught developer, born and raised in the Bronx, NY. I’ve been involved in the tech industry for 3-4 years. Prior to that, I worked as an office manager for several years. That experience allowed me to enhance my team management skills. I am currently a QA at ThoughtWorks Chicago. My career goals are racial diversity in tech and using technology in underserved communities. My interests are hiphop, embroidery and documentaries.
I came to find ThoughtWorks by
networking my butt off during my time with Startup Institute New York.
My geeky passion is
cross world puzzles and dr seuss books
The best advice I can give a current or future ThoughtWorker is
Keep following your dreams and use technology as a tool.
The thing I'm most proud of from my time here is
the challenges I've overcome.
The thing I love most about my work is
If I could fix one of the world's problems, I'd put my powers to use on behalf of
Black trans women, trans people, Black people, queer people, and gender non-conforming people.
