Working for a travel company like Vrbo is an opportunity many of us daydream about, but for Gabriela Gil it's her reality. Almost two years ago, Gabriela stepped out of her comfort zone and attended a PowerToFly networking event with #Vrbo - an event that included Vrbo's president, members of its executive team, and the CEO of Life at Expedia Group, Vrbo's parent company. A few months later, Gabriela landed a role at Vrbo as a #SoftwareEngineer II, where she enjoys travel perks, wellness and fitness reimbursements, 401k matching, stock options, and up to 20 weeks #MaternityLeave/#PaternityLeave. Read on to learn more about Gabriela, her experience with #PowerToFly, Vrbo's process, and their approach to #DiversityAndInclusion. #WorkPerks #CareerAdvice #Benefits #DiversityInTech ➡️ http://bit.ly/2q5Qe6B ⬅️

PowerToFly Rocked Austin with Vrbo's Women Tech Leaders

PowerToFly was excited to reunite with Vrbo (formerly HomeAway) to present an evening of networking and inspiring discussions, lead by Vrbo's women tech leaders.

Held at Vrbo's Austin headquarters and hosted by PowerToFly's Cristina Duke (an Austin resident) the evening began with a chance for our invited guests to network with each other and members of the Vrbo team while also enjoying various product demos.

The evening kicked into high gear with a keynote address by Vrbo's Anita Dodia, VP, Engineering before our attendees split into breakout sessions for individuals working in Engineering, Product & Program Management, Partner Success and Business, with each discussion spearheaded by a Vrbo leader, who included Laura Howell, Sr. Director, Partner Success; Martta Howard, Director, Product Operations; and Hayley McKeon, Sr. Program Manager, Brand Marketing.

After some amazing, frank discussions, we transitioned back into networking for the rest of the night. Here's what one attendee had to say about her experience: Really a wonderful and well put together event. I enjoyed the keynote speaker as well as the breakout session. I learned quite a bit about Vrbo that is really exciting.
