We Met MINDBODY's Women Tech Leaders in San Francisco
On July 11th, PowerToFly partnered with MINDBODY on our third event together. This particular gathering for women in tech took place in in the San Francisco HQ of Frederick for MINDBODY and featured a product demo, tech talk and, of course, plenty of opportunities for our guests to network with MINDBODY leaders and each other.
The night kicked off with a spirited keynote address by Regina Wallace-Jones, Vice President, Product Operations. Regina also spoke at our event with MINDBODY in New York and she is a truly a thoughtful, inspiring presence. If you see that she's speaking at a conference near you...go!
After Regina warmed up the room, we moved into the evening's tech talk hosted by Mariane Bekker, Director of Engineering. It was a pleasure to have Mariane in the room and to hear directly from one of the skilled professionals behind MINDBODY's product.
Mariane and Regina stuck around for a panel discussion and audience Q&A where they were joined by Pallavi Pershey, Software Engineer and Emma Flock, Software Engineer. Our panel shared their own career journeys while also diving deeper into their lives at MINDBODY. After our panel wrapped up, attendees had plenty of more time to mingle with each other before closing out the night.
Getting ready for the big night!
A great night to network!
Brittany Boardman went to her first interview with Stack Overflow without expecting much.
"I'm not technical, I'm not an engineer. And I wasn't necessarily looking [for a new job]. But Stack just blew me away," says Brittany of her first exposure to the company behind the world's largest and most trusted software developer and technologist community. "The people I met that day seemed like they genuinely liked coming to work. There was this cohesive belief in what the company was doing. I was converted pretty quickly after that interview—Stack was somewhere I wanted to join."
