Hola, I’m Frances! 👋🏽💛️💻


Hola, I’m Frances! I’m a software engineer at Slack, a former nonprofit executive director, a professional speaker, a fierce advocate for racial equity in tech and a loving Corgi mom to Luna and Sueño.

I currently work as a software engineer specializing in UI development and lead generation on the Customer Acquisition Team at Slack where my mission is to make your working life simpler, more pleasant, and more productive.

I have been working professionally as a developer since 2015 and hold a Bachelor’s in Computer Science from Hampton University and a Master’s in Computer Science from Cornell Tech.

Outside of Slack, I volunteer as the Technology Director and a Board Advisor for Techqueria, a nonprofit that serves the largest global community of Latinx professionals in tech.

I’ve invested over 100 hours in tutoring people of all ages — elementary school to adulthood — on how to get started in the tech field. I’ve taught and mentored others through external organizations trying to enact change in the tech industry, like Springboard, General Assembly, Thinkful, and The Next Chapter.

Approaches problems with a systematic approach and has a keen eye for details.

I was impressed with her work ethic and strong voice, and I’m certain she will move up quickly wherever she works.

What I value most about Frances is her willingness to share knowledge with fellow students and professionals.

She is dedicated to not only her own success but also helping people around to achieve their goals.

Frances is a great podcast interviewer and an amazing engineer.

Since Frances is a woman of color in tech who I look up to, I was honored and excited to be featured on the podcast.
