Brenda Jin

I'm a software engineer and advocate for women's empowerment and education. I taught myself to code in 2013 and have since become one of the highest ranking female technical contributors at Slack.

I'm the creator of Crush Your Summer Internship, a free 12-week program to help interns maximize their experience.

I'm the co-creator of Developing Executive Presence, a group-coaching experience for women to activate their unique, authentic, executive voice.

I'm passionate about sharing the professional, leadership, and communication tools to support women 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.
