Linh Dao Smooke makes sure the light is on at Hacker Noon. Since she joined full time in 2017, Hacker Noon’s traffic, revenue and team quality accelerated and grew many folds. Previously, she was head of Asia Marketing at Minerva Project ($100M in funding). Linh also founded the first creativity camp in Vietnam, CKP, which continues to empower Viet students 9 years in. Her experience in education has been instrumental in how Hacker Noon onboards, nurtures, and serves its community of writers and sponsors. She graduated from Brown University with a degree in International Development. In Linh’s spare time, she sleeps. As a new mother & an entrepreneur, she doesn’t really have spare time.
