Originally from New Hampshire, Sweta gained her BA in computer science at Georgia Tech before a stint with the Union Pacific Railroad as an on-call engineer. Drawn to the Bay Area by opportunities, Sweta entered the startup scene and interviewed with PagerDuty. Noticing the excitement about the product’s potential, Sweta joined PagerDuty and hasn’t looked back.
Each morning, Sweta reviews the schedule of upcoming meetings that will dot her day—developmental one-on-ones with team members, long-term strategic thinking sessions, and interviews for new candidates. Working within an agile framework, Sweta helps maintain deep collaboration between the Engineering, Product, and UX Teams, ensuring that action items are captured, feedback is reviewed, and goals are met.
“We have ‘Failure Fridays,’ where we try to break something in production, to see if our systems hold up. It really helps us learn how to create a more resilient product.”
“We have an internal conference annually for all of our engineers called PagerCon—we have one in San Francisco and one in Toronto. It’s a TED-style event, with presentations, talks, workshops and slide karaoke. It's a great way to learn and share insights and knowledge across our entire team.”
