Cara Marie Bonar

Cara is a offensive security lead at Datadog. Previously, she spent over four years as a security consultant at NCC Group. Cara has always loved change – a direct consequence of a military upbringing. She hates being bored, and this drive has taken her to some interesting places (ticket scalping in NYC, teaching English in Japan, and harvesting in New Mexico). Before attending Hackbright, she worked as the senior web designer for an insurance consulting firm. Originally hired as a print designer, she quickly found herself building their sites. Cara found herself delegating the design tasks to junior associates so she could spend more time coding. She found that she loves the potent combination of creativity and problem solving that programming offers. The intellectual engagement doesn’t leave any room for boredom.
