Michelle Hodges is an engineer at Slalom Build and is the president of Women Leaders in Tech, a nonprofit organization she founded to shift perspectives on gender biases in tech. After managing operations at a fast-growing IT startup, Michelle fell in love with the tech industry and delved deep into learning back-end engineering. She's dabbled in writing back-end services and tools in Go, C#, NodeJS, and Python, while also touching front-end frameworks such as React and Redux. Shortly after becoming a software engineer, Michelle was introduced to the notion of DevOps and immediately became impassioned with the world of automation and serverless infrastructure. She has decided that building and securing infrastructure in the cloud will be the main focus of her career. In 2018, Michelle and her husband created an open source application, hideNsneak, that assists penetration testers in deploying mass amount of cloud infrastructure for red teaming purposes.
