  1. * Incredible grasp on the technology & problem space. I’ve never had my interview process begin with such an in-depth discussion around the company mission & how each req is meant to fill a specific skill gap. * Proactive about culture. Even when Censys had a tiny employee count, Jasmine was intentional about growing the right kind of culture. She lives and breathes our cultural values daily, and makes sure that every employee is bought in on them. * Create growth pathways. Jasmine knows how to align every individual’s own goals with the company’s trajectory. It creates an environment where everyone is jointly responsible for the direction of Censys. In short.. she is the most talented HR/People Strategy expert I have ever worked with in my career. She stretches the boundaries on what a high-performing people department is capable of.
