Our Night with CloudBees in Raleigh
PowerToFly partnered with CloudBees on June 25th to present our first event together...and our first event in Raleigh, North Carolina.
We were thrilled to have one of CloudBees' co-founders, Francois Dechery, on the panel and a keynote address by their CFO Matt Parson. These two male allies were joined by three of CloudBees women tech leaders: April Mace - AVP, Global Solution Architecture; Buffi Gresh - AVP, WW Software Delivery Strategy and Enablement; and Marina Harrell - Senior Manager, Engineering (who also lead us through an amazing product demo) to discuss favorite projects, current tech innovations, and their personal career journeys.
CloudBees (who is hiring) understands that organizations with greater diversity—gender, racial, ethnic, and global—are stronger partners to their customers. They attribute much of their success to CloudBees' worldwide workforce and commitment to global diversity, which opens their proprietary software to innovative ideas from anywhere.

Farnaz Azmoodeh used to dislike running. She was really, truly, actively not interested.
But after suffering through it for a few months, it's now one of her favorite things to do. "I get so much joy out of it," says Farnaz. The same thing happened when she started making pottery: she says the first month was "terrible" as she struggled to shape the clay with no success but shares that she came to love the process of building after getting through an initial period of learning and adjusting.
