Hi, I'm Maria, and I've worked in community management in technology for the past 10 years, specializing in B2B community building, strategy and growth. I've worked for major SaaS companies like LinkedIn, Salesforce and Microsoft, as well as smaller startups. I currently work at FinancialForce, where I'm part of a team of two, and am responsible for our customer community, which has a lofty vision of being a one-stop shop for all of our customers' needs. I'm happy to say, we've been delivering nicely on that vision. I love what I do, because thriving communities help users and organizations alike to improve and be ready for whatever changes life throws at them. It's been a true privilege to watch community members I've worked with in the past grow their careers and achieve their true potential. I'm excited to meet you and look forward to sharing best practices that help all of us succeed in building thriving communities!
