Brenda Jin

Software Engineer

I'm a Staff Engineer at Slack, where I write software that makes work more productive for millions of people every day. I launched the Slack Platform in 2015, then designed and built compliance APIs for Slack’s Enterprise Grid. When we launched Shared Channels, I was the tech lead who made sure that our developer ecosystem wasn't an afterthought.

Before Slack, I launched the first responsive shopping experience at, a website that does ~$73MM in transactions per day.

I'm a Board Member and volunteer Chapter Leader for Girl Develop It, a non-profit organization that teaches thousands of adult women software development every month. Girl Develop It's workshops remove the barriers to participation that keep women out of technology.

I write and speak about Engineering Leadership and API design. Contact me if you'd like to invite me to speak at your conference.
