Why Fastmail ‘Is Made For’ an Ever-Curious Maker Like Backend Developer Yara Beadenkopf

An interest in playing with tech gadgets is in backend developer Yara Beadenkopf’s blood.

“My dad spent his entire career in IT,” Beadenkopf said. “Growing up, different generations of computers were passed to my sister and I like hand-me-downs. If there was something I wanted to do on an old computer, I had to figure out how to make it work on my own.”

Later, as a product design student at Drexel, Beadenkopf’s interest in how things work expanded to their daily method of transportation: the bicycle. They began working in bike shops learning the ins and outs of designing custom bike frames and parts.
