Office Hours: I'm Rukmini Reddy, VP of Engingeering at Abstract.Featured
Hi Elpha! I'm Rukmini, VP of Engineering at Abstract, where I lead a remote-first team where 80% of the engineering managers are women. I am also a mom to 6 year old twin boys and grateful that they are growing up to see a woman of color - a mother - as an archetype for what engineering leaders look like.Prior to joining Abstract, I was the VP of Engineering at Model N, where I scaled the team from 10 to 70 engineers in 2 years. Before that, I was as the VP of Engineering at Determine, where I ran both product and professional services engineering teams. I started my career at Bank of America as a software developer. I quickly realized that I enjoy building teams and bringing clarity so everyone can perform at their best, so I transitioned into engineering management, and have been leading teams for over a decade. Ask me about using data to evaluate performance, building structure and clarity in everything, from career paths to 1:1 meetings, being a mother and a leader, or something else!
