Alice originally graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from MIT. Somehow, she found herself in a program manager job at Microsoft immediately after college. She also spent the last two years in Taiwan/China as a product manager, taking one startup to TechCrunch Disrupt Beijing 2011 as a battlefield finalist. Motivated by a desire to build something and encouraged by her role models, she recently decided to go back to her engineering roots and give software engineering a shot. Alice is a Technical Program Manager at Google.
