Meet Allyssa Hernandez, A Software Engineering Recruiter at Intuit!
If you've ever heard of TurboTax, QuickBooks, or Mint, then you're already familiar with some of the products that the team at Intuit brings to life each and every day.

How long have you been at Inuit, and what are some of your roles and responsibilities?
Ayssa Hernandez: I've been at Intuit for 11 months. At Intuit, I'm a talent partner/advisor. I help identify top talent and engage them. I also play a crucial role in market research and analysis that helps Intuit grow.
What do you love about working at Intuit?
AH: Three things come to mind, and diversity stands out the most - my team is a mix of folks from different experiences and backgrounds. Second, everything we do contributes to the overall talent strategy. Finally, our CEO is inspiring!
If you could describe the culture at your company in one word, what would it be and why?
AH: #WinTogether (that counts as one-word :D). The sum of all our efforts and contributions is what creates excellence and what creates an awesome team.
What traits are you looking for in your next team member?
AH: Someone who's collaborative, educating, a team-player, self-motivated, strategic, and customer-oriented.
Why did you decide to partner with PowerToFly?
AH: Diversity and Inclusion - let's transform and diversify the tech space!
Do you have any advice for someone interested in working at your company?
AH: If you're interested in software engineering, the people who stand out are the people who are technologists, committed to learning, collaborative, solutions-oriented, and care about the customer. Our Intuit values will give you an idea about the type of people you'd be working with and the folks who succeed ☺
For the boss you loved, the coworker you hated, and everyone in between
Two things are inevitable when someone leaves your team at work: there will be an abundance of sweet treats (I'm partial to those giant cookie cakes from the mall) and there will be a card passed around for everyone to scrawl the professional version of sweet nothings in. Depending on the "importance" of the person, you may get the bonus activities of farewell gifts and/or an all-team champagne toast.
If you are a New York based tech professional and you'd like to attend this event, please email your name and LinkedIn URL to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether you are a software engineer, fitness enthusiast or both, you won't want to miss PowerToFly's evening of product demos and networking with the women tech leaders and allies at Peloton.
Founded in 2012, Peloton brought top talent together in its Silicon Alley headquarters to create a new concept in fitness. In their words, "We loved cycling but had a hard time finding a workout that consistently fit our schedules, and our at-home workouts never felt quite up to par. So, we set out to create a world-class indoor cycling studio experience on your time, and in the comfort of your own home."
This event is your chance to hear directly from the women tech leaders and allies who make their revolutionary products like the Peloton Bike, Peloton Tread and Peloton App possible. We'll be devoting a large portion of the event to taking your questions and I know the Peloton team wants to hear from you!
The unique evening will take place on Wednesday, February 12th from 6pm to 8:30pm at 125 W 25th Street.
There's a lot more to building an inclusive company than just hiring more people from diverse backgrounds. So, how can you build an inclusive culture that will help you attract and retain a diverse group of employees?
