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.
A great crowd at our event with CloudBees

You're in the late stages of interviews for a remote job—congratulations! But negotiating a salary is already hard enough. How do you do it as a remote worker who won't be positioned in the same place as the company?
In my mid-20s I developed a brain tumor that needed to be surgically removed (7 years tumor free today, woo hoo!). After recovering from brain surgery and realizing that the job I had may have been a contributor to my stress, I took a hiatus from working to concentrate on finding myself.
After discovering what really made me happy (making bagels from scratch) and what made me not so happy (how I felt after eating a ton of bagels from scratch), and my savings started to dwindle, I decided I needed to figure out how to get back to work after my career break.
So you've finally had the interview you were waiting for, and now you want to know the best way to follow up. Enter the thank you email. You should send a follow-up email thanking your interviewer(s) and reiterating your interest in the position. In this article, we'll review guidelines for following up by email after an interview.
