An Inside Look at Our Event with HomeAway's (now Vrbo) Women In Tech
Women Share Their Experiences Working at Vrbo
On February 28th, PowerToFly returned to Austin to partner on our second event with groundbreaking vacation rental company Vrbo. This invite-only event was for mid to senior women in tech working as Software Engineers, UX Designers, Data Scientists & Analysts, Mobile Engineers and more.
Hosted by PowerToFly's Cristina Duke (an Austin native), the event kicked off with a keynote address by Vrbo's Senior Vice President, Strategy, Brand and Communications Judy Kay before jumping into an informative panel discussion and Q&A session featuring several of Vrbo's women leaders including:
- Tina Weyand, Chief Product Officer
- Anita Dodia, Senior Director, Software Engineering
- Hannah Lindsley, Data Science Manager
- Francesca Hernandez, Manager, Digital Platform
Here's what one attendee had to say about the event: "I am the only woman on a team of a dozen or so engineers. I really found it refreshing to hear what the panelists had to say. It definitely made me want to pursue an opportunity with a company where I can work with an equal mix of men and women. Thank you!"
If you are looking for new opportunities, Vrbo is hiring. Their amazing benefits include plenty of paid vacation, up to 20 weeks of parental leave, and their one of a kind Table Talks aimed at encouraging creativity and innovation.
