Generic Bio

Hola, I’m Frances! 👋🏽

I’m a senior software engineer, a fierce advocate for diversity in tech, and a doting Corgi mom. 👩🏽‍💻

I have over six years of full-time software engineering experience with a heavy focus on product and web frontend development. My specialties lie in growth engineering, design systems, and accessibility. 🛠️

Outside work, I enjoy speaking, teaching, and mentoring to lead by example and inspire the next generation of software engineers. 🚀

I am based in Inglewood, California, with my partner and our two Corgis, Luna & Sueño. 🐾

I was born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia, and I identify as Peruvian-American. 🇵🇪

I am passionate about supporting and uplifting Latinx professionals in tech (especially Latina software engineers), employee resource groups, and software engineering apprentices. 💛

First-Person Bio

I am a senior software engineer at JupiterOne, a cybersecurity startup that provides cyber asset attack surface management. At JupiterOne, I’m focused on our design system and UI infrastructure and am responsible for executing projects that cross multiple applications in our front end. 🪐

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. 👩🏽‍💻️
