On February 12th, PowerToFly co-hosted an evening of tech talks and discussions with revolutionary fitness innovator Peloton. (We have three PowerToFly team members who are Peloton members so we are clearly big fans).
Moderated by PowerToFly's Amy Trappey, this event was a chance to hear directly from the women tech leaders and allies who make Peloton's innovative products like the Peloton Bike, Peloton Tread and Peloton App possible.
Kicking off the evening, Peloton's Mindy Lieberman, VP of enterprise systems, greeted the crowd with warm and heartfelt introductory remarks before introducing Christine Becker, -senior software engineer at Peloton, who walked us through a behind-the-scenes tech talk. Mindy and Christine then stuck around to join a panel discussion & audience Q&A that also included Chandra Galbiati Thomas and Rosemary Arnold, both of whom are also software engineers.
Peloton is hiring. Benefits include a 401k plan with a 4% match, $100 a month towards your student loans, $100 a month towards a college savings plan, discounted bikes for you and your friends/family, and a great work-life balance.

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!

PowerToFly hosted one of its best attended events EVER on November 13th with iconic publisher Condé Nast, home to such legendary brands as Vogue, Wired, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, GQ, and many more.
Held at Condé Nast's sleek offices inside One World Trade Center, and sporting the fantastic views that go with it, the night began with an introduction by PowerToFly's CEO Milena Berry and a video message by Condé Nast's Morgan Evans, Vice President, Engineering.
Following an insightful tech talk, the centerpiece of the evening was an open and host panel discussion featuring several women leaders at Condé Nast including:
- Danielle Virgin, Vice President, Data Products | Data Enrichment
- Chelsea Farnam, Senior Product Manager | Product Development - Consumer Marketing
- Lydia White, Design Director
- Tess Shapiro, Engineering Manager
- Monica Racic, Director of Production & Multimedia | The New Yorker - Editorial Website
Here's what one attendee had to say about the event: "Truly loved this event. I really liked how you were able to see another side of Condé Nast that not a lot of people really think about."
Condé Nast values diversity of backgrounds, views, and cultures. They celebrate people for their personal qualities, skills, and contributions. And they recognize the power our brands have to influence and shape culture, catalyze action, and help make our world a better place for all.
Condé Nast has two global employee councils focused on issues that are top of mind for them, their industry, and the world: Diversity & Inclusion and Sustainability. The councils are made up of members from all markets, functions, and levels of the company. They work closely with senior leaders across Condé Nast to champion global initiatives and guide their work, internally and externally, on these topics.
