As a relatively new homeowner, I know firsthand how difficult it can be to navigate the world of real estate and how important it is to have a trusted guide with you along that journey. That's why I was thrilled as PowerToFly's Production Lead to collaborate with real estate groundbreaker Compass on a women in tech networking event, held at their gorgeous New York office, on December 6th.
"Women in tech" you say, not "women in real estate"? Yes, because at its heart, Compass is a technology company that is building the first modern real estate platform, pairing the industry's top talent with technology to make the search and sell experience intelligent and seamless.
Maëlle Gavet, Compass' COO provided the evening's welcoming remarks.
PowerToFly's Katharine Zaleski moderated a panel featuring Maëlle Gavet; Basia Mucha, Senior Engineering Manager; and Tal Netanyahu, Engineering Manager.
Joseph Sirosh, Compass' CTO, takes questions from the audience.
Attendees had plenty of opportunities to network with members of the Compass team.

"In Silicon Valley, today, there is a sisterhood of women who are supporting each other, telling each other about board opportunities, giving each other business ideas" - Christa Quarles, OpenTable CEO.
Meet and hear more from Christa and her executive team on March 14th about how they're building inclusive environments and innovative tech products at OpenTable. The night will kickoff with a keynote address by OpenTable CTO Joseph Essas and will feature a product demonstration from OpenTable's female tech leaders. We'll end the evening with an opportunity for you to network with additional women in tech over cocktails and light food.
Also, OpenTable is hiring! They offer professional development opportunities, wellness events, four weeks of accrued PTO per year and access to such affinity groups as OpenTable's Women in Tech and Women of OpenTable. To learn more about OpenTable, a company that Glassdoor named one of the "Best Places to Work 2016", and their open opportunities, visit their page at PowerToFly.
