Wei graduated from Columbia after mastering the intricacies of electrical engineering. She didn’t intend to enter a software environment, but discovered her love of coding while working as a quality analyst for AppNexus. Before she knew it, colleagues were sharing books and tutorials to catch her up to speed and voila—she became a software engineer.
Wei makes other people’s lives easier—specifically those who weave AppNexus into existing frameworks. She builds devkits that align with a given strategy so publishers have insights and clients can manage their own in-app ads. Though she does a lot of coding, she never misses her team’s weekly bonding session at a local restaurant or bar.
