I’m Sony Mohapatra, a Senior Engineering Leader at Cruise, where I lead the platform team that builds and maintains the core infrastructure and services for autonomous vehicles.
Before Cruise, I worked at Informatica, LinkedIn, and Apple. I’m a mentor at Women in Autonomy and Plato and am very passionate about women in tech and drive towards developing women engineers through various forums.
I live in California with my loving husband and son, who is 8 years old. In my free time, I love to paint, hike a scenic route, and dance.
Ask me anything about software development, DEI, sustainable transportation, transitioning from IC to managerial positions, how to be a great manager, becoming a Python and Selenium expert, mentorship, or anything else!
