PowerToFly Rocked Austin with Vrbo's Women Tech Leaders
PowerToFly was excited to reunite with Vrbo (formerly HomeAway) to present an evening of networking and inspiring discussions, lead by Vrbo's women tech leaders.
Held at Vrbo's Austin headquarters and hosted by PowerToFly's Cristina Duke (an Austin resident) the evening began with a chance for our invited guests to network with each other and members of the Vrbo team while also enjoying various product demos.
The evening kicked into high gear with a keynote address by Vrbo's Anita Dodia, VP, Engineering before our attendees split into breakout sessions for individuals working in Engineering, Product & Program Management, Partner Success and Business, with each discussion spearheaded by a Vrbo leader, who included Laura Howell, Sr. Director, Partner Success; Martta Howard, Director, Product Operations; and Hayley McKeon, Sr. Program Manager, Brand Marketing.
After some amazing, frank discussions, we transitioned back into networking for the rest of the night. Here's what one attendee had to say about her experience: Really a wonderful and well put together event. I enjoyed the keynote speaker as well as the breakout session. I learned quite a bit about Vrbo that is really exciting.
Vrbo, part of Expedia Group, has introduced a new way for people to travel together, pairing homeowners with families and friends looking for places to stay, with unique properties in 190 countries around the world. This is your opportunity to meet with the women tech leaders and allies who make it all possible.
Vrbo is hiring! Their amazing benefits include plenty of paid vacation, up to 20 weeks of parental leave, an employee stock purchase program, and travel reimbursements. To learn more about Vrbo and their open positions, visit their page on PowerToFly.

This edition of our career spotlight series features Caitlin Flint, Group Design Manager at Intuit.
Caitlin's career began at the Advancement Project, a civil rights nonprofit focused on large-scale systemic change to remedy inequity. There, she had the opportunity to work on mapping software for California's first-ever open redistricting process, which ignited her passion for improving people's lives at scale. This made her a natural fit for a role on Intuit's design team, where she has worked for the past six years. Caitlin earned her B.A. in Design from the University of California in Davis, where she specialized in Visual Communications.
