Ana is a Software Engineer living in San Francisco. She started her coding career as a middle schooler doing freelance work, went on to land paid engineering internships throughout high school and college, and eventually dropped out to work full-time in Silicon Valley. She last worked at Uber where she was an engineer on the SRE and Infrastructure teams specifically focusing on chaos engineering and cloud computing. Originally from a Nicaraguan family, Ana was born in Costa Rica and later moved to the United States where her tech development took off in Miami. Her achievements have been a result of her persistence in not taking no for an answer and always finding a solution. As a Latina, she is breaking the glass ceiling within Silicon Valley and using her voice to encourage women in Hispanic/Latinx communities to learn how to code.
