Slack Community HQ
Thu, Jul 22, 2021, 10:00 AM (PDT)

About this event

Rukmini Reddy is the VP of Platform Engineering at Slack.

She joined Slack last year to lead teams that deliver exceptional first-party and third-party app experience, as well as drive the vision of Workflow Builder, Slack's no-code automation tool. Before Slack, she was VP of Engineering at Abstract, Model N, and other enterprise SaaS companies.

Her experience as an immigrant, a woman, and a developer with nearly 15 years of technical experience, have prepared her to lead large and diverse engineering teams, and forge genuine human connections with her colleagues. She is based in the San Francisco Bay Area and has been juggling work and home-school like most parents since 2020 for her 8-year-old twin boys.

Would you like to learn more about the vision for Workflow Builder? Perhaps you're curious about the changes Rukmini has seen in her time in tech? Rukmini is here to answer your questions!
