PowerToFly headed back to Toronto on July 17th to learn about gaming from some of the leaders in the industry. We were thrilled to partner with Zynga on our second (sold out!) event together in an evening of networking and tech talks highlighting their women tech leaders.
Hosted by PowerToFly CEO Milena Berry, the night kicked off with networking before Zynga's Martin Edelman, Senior Director, Toronto Development Services officially began the night with a brief keynote address.
Next up, we dove deeper into some of Zynga's well known products, which include Words With Friends™ and Zynga Poker™, via a series of tech talks and product demos hosted by Di Chang, Senior Director, Engineering; Whitney Mak, Engineering Manager and Jackie Fong, Sr User Experience Designer.
Di, Whitney and Jackie stuck around for an open panel discussion, where they were joined by Rebecca Robinson, Sr HR Business Partner. Our panelists discussed their careers in gaming, dove into what Zynga is looking for in new team members and, of course, answered questions from our eager audience.
This very special gathering closed out with plenty of more opportunities to network over food and drinks before we had to say goodnight.
Since the PowerToFly team is based all around the world (we have team members on every continent except Australia and Antarctica) we love it when our journeys take us outside of the United States. That's why we were thrilled to partner with a truly global company, Symantec, to present an evening for software and support engineers in Toronto, Canada on November 7th.
