Hi everyone! I am Balwinder Kaur, a serial founding engineer, and currently Head of Data and Machine Learning at Apella Technology, a startup building technology to improve surgery. I have led multiple women-in-tech initiatives for the last 6 years.
Prior to Apella, I was the founding engineer at AppDynamics where we built and took the IOT product to market. In previous lives I have worked on Android camera software stacks and connected video kits at Aptina Imaging, and was part of the Android team at T-Mobile when the first Android phone was launched. I also founded 2 startups that went nowhere :)
I am a daughter, a sister, a wife, and a mother.
Ask me anything about building from zero to one, leading engineering teams, championing DEI programs, re-inventing yourself, raising kids while working, and more!
