Meet Ellora Praharaj, Director of Reliability Engineering, and Jon Chan, Director of Engineering at Stack Overflow, who’ll go over some aspects of the engineering culture that they have at Stack Overflow, how the engineering team is growing, and what will tell you what they're looking for in new team members.
📼 If your dream is to pursue a career at Stack Overflow, Ellora and Jon share three essential takeaways to consider: first, be excited about building high-quality products with technology. Second: value collaboration- Stack Overflow has always been about how the power of community and working together can make the world a better place.

In Ellora’s experience, leading by example is the simplest way of demonstrating her approach. Being honest and focusing on the facts, by taking accountability and owning up when mistakes happen.
A Career at Stack Overflow - Be Part Of A Diverse And Dynamic Team
Stack Overflow is a place that's been built by developers and for developers. And what that means for the engineering team is the need to build a team that's as diverse and as dynamic as the community that they are serving. In Jon’s words, when he first joined the company, as an out, queer, person of color, and a self-taught programmer, too, it was important that he joined a company that really made him feel comfortable being himself. When Jon joined Stack Overflow, he found that they weren't just supportive of him, individually, but really gave him the resources to pay that support forward. Not just to the team, the broader company, but even the developer community that Stack Overflow is serving, too.

PowerToFly was thrilled to partner with Casper, the groundbreaking company revolutionizing the way we think about sleep, to present an evening for women in engineering on November 14th.
As our guests arrived, they had plenty of time to network with their peers and members of the Casper team over cocktails and bites before the event officially kicked off with a welcome address by Casper's Chief People Officer Elizabeth Wolfson. Next up, our guests were given a real treat as they watched a product demo conducted by none other than Casper's Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer Jeff Chapin.
When Jeff concluded, it was time for a panel discussion, moderated by PowerToFly's Amy Trappey, featuring two of Casper's impressive women tech leaders, Chief Experience Officer Eleanor Morgan and Design Strategy Director Rachel Robinette, along one amazing male ally, Vice President - Industrial Design Rhys Newman. Our panel not only answered Amy's questions on their careers and journeys at Casper but were more than happy to take questions from our enthusiastic audience too.
As the panel wrapped up, the evening concluded with more free networking time which provided our attendees more opportunities to ask the panel (and other Casper employees) their burning questions. Before the night came to a close, Casper had one more surprise for everyone as they raffled off one of their acclaimed mattresses to a lucky audience member.
Casper is hiring! They believes that better sleep makes for better living. Their competitive benefits include company equity, a comprehensive 401(k) program, fitness stipends, an open vacation policy, catered lunches and a gifted bed set.
