Engineer, Nonprofit Leader, Speaker & Mentor
I am currently a software engineer specializing in UI development on the Customer Acquisition Team at Slack where my mission is to make your working life simpler, more pleasant, and more productive.
Outside of Slack, I am an Executive Director of Techqueria, a 501c3 nonprofit that serves the largest community of Latinx in Tech in the US.
I also support Coro Northern California as a board member, Code Nation as a member of their Bay Area Leadership Council and the Latino Community Foundation as a member of their Latinos in Tech Giving Circle.
I’ve spoken at 60+ events so far on a variety of topics, ranging from driving D&I in the tech industry to community building.
Frances shared with me her unique perspective and thoughtful insights as I enter the tech world.
Her willingness to share knowledge and commitment to inclusion is truly awe inspiring.
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.
