Short Bio

Frances is a senior software engineer, a professional speaker, a fierce advocate for diversity in tech, and a loving Corgi mom.

First-Person Bio

I am currently a senior software engineer at Byteboard, a startup that spun out of Google, which is focused on recreating the technical interview experience to be more effective, efficient, and equitable for all.

Previously, I worked as a software engineer at Slack, specializing 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 serving as a mentor for my team’s first intern, I received praise for my leadership capabilities and a merit bonus.

I 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 have worked 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.

I reside in Inglewood, California, with my partner and our two Corgis, Luna and Sueño.
