As soon as she discovered CafePress, Carrie knew she’d found the right fit—and she was hired as one of the first programmers.

Engineering Manager, Foundation
Carrie heads a team of developers who improve the inner workings of CafePress. Because she’s interested in doing things correctly over time instead of implementing short-term solutions, Carrie also leads the group through sprint cycles, with a team-focused approach to moving projects forward. When she isn’t replacing old technologies, Carrie lends a hand on special assignments—like revamping the website’s imaging system.
