Brenda Jin

I started Guanyin Labs, a company whose mission is to help people reach their full potential at work. I taught myself to code in 2013 and became a Senior Developer at, then a Staff Engineer at Slack.

I'm passionate about sharing the professional, leadership, and communication tools to support people of all levels and professional backgrounds in their careers. As a Board Member for Girl Develop It, I empower thousands of adult women with software skills every month by removing the barriers that keep women out of technology.

I write about work and software design. Check out my popular posts Technical Leadership: Getting Started and Not Technical Enough: What Does That Mean?. Designing Web APIs that Developers Love, co-authored with Saurabh Sahni and Amir Shevat, will be published in 2018.
