Trailblazers in Technology: ‘I left a steady job to build a start-up in an attic while I was pregnant’
Áine Kerr was interviewed by Image Magazine as part of their series on women working in business and technology. In the interview, Áine talks about becoming a mother for the first time, leaving Facebook, starting a startup while pregnant, and more.
“I don’t believe in this word balance, but I do believe in the idea of ruthless prioritisation every day, and that was a big learning for me in Facebook. When you move from traditional journalism – you’re always chasing – you go into Storyful for five years – a scrappy start-up that became this incredible company – then you go into Facebook – the biggest platform in the world with 30,000 people – and then back to an attic in Merrion Square with 12 people.”
