Helen has represented women in technology for years–even though she is early in her career. By the time she graduated from Stanford University, she'd completed internships at Google, NerdWallet, and VMWare. In choosing where to work, Helen preferred the opportunity and growth at Affirm. Here, one of her main initiatives is serving on the Diversity & Inclusion Council—eliminating bias in the interview process and creating more diversity at the top of the hiring funnel.
Helen’s days are filled with code reviews, code creation, and technical specifications for potential future projects. But a big chunk of her day is also spent collaborating with product managers and designers to make sure Affirm builds the right products. After she’s shipped code, Helen helps maintain the products—in between attending conferences and speaking on young-professional panels.
