In a recently discussed Slideshare (http://growthhackers.com/the-marketing-technologist-neo-of-the-marketing-matrix-slideshare/), the author presents a Java developer's path to marketing technologist (aka growth hacker). As we know, this is just one path out of countless many. I thought it would be helpful to gather a collection of real-world scenarios by asking Growth Hackers and Aspiring Growth Hackers to share the path that led them to transform into the role of growth hacker.
As defined by Sean Ellis: "a growth hackers is a person whose true north is growth. Everything they do is scrutinized by its potential impact on scalable growth."
