Slack Community HQ
Thu, Jan 27, 2022, 10:00 AM (PST)

About this event

Mónica Wilkinson is a new staff software engineer on the Platform Technical Architecture team. She recently joined after five years on the BizTech team, leading the Slack on Slack innovation program. Her most recent project was working on a Lead Passing system that uses Slack bots over Slack Connect, which was critical to the Salesforce acquisition. This project used a lot of new features from the Platform team, which piqued her interest in joining the team in a more official capacity.

Mónica has worked in software engineering for many years, with roles at MySpace, Facebook and VMWare. She is a fan of decentralized systems and open standards.

Originally from Lima, Peru, Mónica now lives in Marin, which is north of San Francisco, California. For fun, she enjoys biking, tennis, amateur snowboarding and hiking. At Slack she was also the co-founder of the Fuego ERG, which helps Hispanic/Latinx employees at the company.
