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!
The unique evening will take place on Wednesday, February 12th from 6pm to 8:30pm at 125 W 25th Street.

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."

On November 20th, over fifty women braved the increasingly chilly New York weather to join PowerToFly at an invite-only happy hour event featuring two fast-growing and fascinating companies, CLEAR and OUTFRONT Media.
Held at the intimate Nomad Annex, guests enjoyed networking over scrumptious small bites and refreshments as they waited for our programming to begin. PowerToFly's CEO Milena Berry warmly greeted the crowd but because she had lost her voice she turned the microphone over to yours truly to host the rest of our gathering.
First up was Jacquelyn Talpalar, VP, Agile Program Management at CLEAR. After sharing some of her personal career journey (and her love of Duke basketball), Jacquelyn walked the room through some of CLEAR's current and upcoming projects. While CLEAR has already revolutionized air travel by using biometrics to speed up security, they've now kicked off an impressive expansion in a host of new arenas - quite literally, like using CLEAR to be approved for an adult beverage at your next concert or sports outing.
Next up, PowerToFly welcomed back OUTFRONT Media's Nancy Hoffman, SVP, Associate General Counsel, MTA Program Manager and Marion Parrish, SVP, Digital Operations. Nancy and Marion spoke at another of our recent NYC events and they are always entertaining and informative. OUTFRONT Media is already a ubiquitous presence through their eye-catching billboards (Times Square? That's them) but Nancy and Marion detailed how OUTFRONT Media has partnered with NYC's MTA to transform the subway and rail systems via electronic screens that provide both advertising and helpful transit updates.
Jacquelyn, Nancy, Marion and their team members also all stuck around to answer questions from our audience. Thanks to everyone who joined us and catch you at the next event!
