to apply to Etsy, most likely for the more junior position having finished Metis in XYZ. We haven't chatted much lately, but I've been following your career with interest - I can tell by how active you've been in the community, writing blogs, giving talks, appearing at conferences etc. that Etsy has been a supportive place to learn and grow and build cool things and give back to the open-source community. I'd love to hear more about your experience there over coffee sometime. But in the meantime do let me know if you have a direct application link so I can get the referral credited to you. If I don't hear from you by, say, Monday I'll reach out to you on Twitter or email (I think I have your email?) in case you're not checking your Slack. Thanks!
