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.
