I am a senior software engineer seeking my next opportunity. 🔍
I have over six years of full-time software engineering experience with a heavy focus on product and web frontend development. My specialties are in growth engineering, design systems, and accessibility. 🛠️
At Slack, I worked in UI development and lead generation on the Customer Acquisition team. One of my projects resulted in over $80 million in pipeline revenue. From co-founding the Fuego ERG for Latinx and Hispanic employees and mentoring my team’s first intern, I received praise for my leadership capabilities and a merit bonus. 🔥
I’ve also served as the Executive Director for Techqueria, a 501c3 nonprofit serving the largest community of Latinx professionals in tech. I oversaw digital strategy and partnership efforts and hired six staff members throughout my tenure. Revenue increased by 5x, and the online community grew by 3x. For my work with Techqueria, I was awarded the Ricardo Salinas scholarship to attend the Aspen Executive Leadership Seminar. 🌮
I am a sought speaker on racial equity in tech and have given over 100 talks since 2012 with engagements at Stanford, Asana, Unidos US, Smash Academy, and Netflix. 💬
I hold a Bachelor’s in Computer Science from Hampton University and a Master’s in Computer Science from Cornell Tech, and I have been getting paid to code since 2015. 👩🏽💻️
I was born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia, and I identify as Peruvian-American. 🇵🇪
I reside in Inglewood, California, with my partner and our two Corgis, Luna and Sueño. 🌴 🐾
I’ve spoken at 100+ events on various topics since 2015, ranging from driving D&I in the tech industry to community building.
I’ve invested hundreds of hours advising people of all ages — elementary school to adulthood — on how to not just get started in the tech field, but thrive.
