Long Bio

Frances is currently a senior software engineer at Byteboard, where she’s building a technical interview that finally assesses for ability, not access, and privilege.

She previously worked as a software engineer at Slack where she specialized in UI development and lead generation on the Customer Acquisition Team.

She has been working professionally as a developer since 2015 and holds a Bachelors in Computer Science from Hampton University and a Masters in Computer Science from Cornell Tech.

At Slack, Frances led development on the top three lead-generating pages on Slack.com (Homepage, Enterprise, Contact Sales) and her demand generation efforts resulted in over $80 million in pipeline revenue from just one of the forms she has led development and maintenance for. She was praised for her cross-functional work ethic and leadership capabilities, leading culture and communication standards for her team as well as co-founding the Fuego ERG for Latinx and Hispanic employees.

Outside of work, Frances is a sought speaker on racial equity in tech and has given over 80 talks since 2012 with engagements at Stanford, Asana, Unidos US, Smash Academy, and Netflix.

Frances currently resides in Inglewood with her partner and two Corgis, Luna & Sueño.
