Irene’s Story
Speaking Her Language
Irene majored in linguistics in college, but it was her computer science minor that came in handy as her career progressed in software engineering. After a move to the Bay Area, she connected with Wealthfront. Intrigued by the combination of finance and technology, Irene found herself speaking SQL instead of Spanish.

The first thing Irene does at the office is check her queue for poll requests and code review. Her main focus is Wealthfront’s front-end stack, but she also contributes to other areas, including the back-end and data platform. Progress report meetings are essential, and most days are spent focusing on the coding and design work of new features.
