I lead engineering teams at Checkr and drive our engineering on-boarding program and "Women in Engineer" ERG. – Michelle Xue.Featured
Hi Elpha! I’m Michelle Xue. I'm the Director of Engineering for Foundation at Checkr, a background check company using artificial intelligence and machine learning to make hiring more inclusive and efficient. I lead the Infrastructure, Data, Platform, and Risk teams (~50 people), which make Checkr easy for our engineers to build on and to draw insights from.My other role is to help grow and scale the overall engineering team. I specifically drive initiatives like the engineering on-boarding program, and quality improvement through metrics. I also sponsor a "Women in Engineering" employee resource group where we host both internal and external meetups and tech talks, as well as doing other fun activities to ensure women engineers are supported.Before Checkr, I worked at NetSuite for 8 years first as a Senior Software Engineer and later Senior Director of the SuiteCloud Platform. My undergraduate study was in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at UC Berkeley. Afterward, I went on to Stanford for my Master’s Degree in Management Science and Engineering.I have a three-year-old son, so whenever I’m not working, all my time goes to him! We love exploring new parts of the city, whether it’s trying new restaurants, parks, or different activities happening in the Bay Area.Ask me about designing engineering on-boarding programs, managing managers, running employee resource groups, getting started in engineering, growing as a woman engineering leader, mentorship or something else!
