I’m Swati Vauthrin and I have over 15 years of experience as an engineering leader across multiple consumer-facing product engineering teams. I’ve created and led diverse teams across the world to bring consumer experiences to market and have led execution from product-market fit and beyond. I’ve seen billions of users engage in technology on both mobile and web that my teams at ESPN, BuzzFeed, Tasty, and Instagram have owned.
It’s been an incredible journey through tech so far. Most recently I was part of the layoffs at Instagram. It was that transition which motivated me to leverage all the experience I’ve gained over the years to start my own venture and create a digital brand for families called Lacubvie. Our mission is to empower families through shared experiences and tried-and-true product recommendations as they go on their own journeys together. You can find us on IG or TT @lacubvie or www.lacubvie.com
My other full-time job is being a mother of 3 - I have a 7.5yr old daughter, 4.5yr old son, and 1yr old daughter. Our family resides in NYC and we enjoy taking in all that the city has to offer. I’m also passionate about cooking (a lot of Indian) and travel (we’re heading to Europe this summer as a family of 5).
I'm also very passionate about mentorship and advocacy and am part of a few mentorship programs including WICS (Women in Computer Science) through The George Washington University.
Ask me anything about engineering leadership, software engineering, product development, starting my own business, recruiting diverse talent, going through a layoff, job search, being a working mom, or anything else! I’m so excited to hear from you all.
