Pooja is a Senior Staff Engineer at HBO. She grew up in India where she was one of few women in her engineering program. She had to get special permission from her father in order to access the lab at her college. Wait, what? Yes. She proved herself, winning awards and coding challenges, and paved the way for the women behind her.
She worked at Microsoft in India and in the United States. Upon arriving at HBO, she couldn’t find a women’s group and so she started one. That’s how you do it.
