Employee Spotlight: Valerie Wilson

Written by #TeamNextdoor

Meet Valerie who works on our Engineering team as a Software Engineer. Read below to learn more about her time at Nextdoor!

Why did you join Nextdoor?

Nextdoor’s core value of investing in community begins within the company. From the moment I started interviewing, I could tell that everyone who works at Nextdoor is warm, welcoming, and always willing to help.

What’s been one of your favorite projects to work on?

I have really enjoyed developing new roles for the Neighborhood Leads Program. From creating tools to help our reviewers handle reported content, to building a role around welcoming neighbors to make sure our new members feel included in the neighborhood from the beginning, I have been lucky to see the positive impact of the work I do.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work? (Pre-COVID & During COVID)?

I love getting on my road bike and exploring the hills, beaches, and communities around the SF Bay Area. I moved during COVID, so I’ve spent a lot of time exploring my new neighborhood, making a hobby of furnishing my new place using Finds on Nextdoor, and checking out new outdoor rock climbing spots.
