Chelsea joined Salesforce three and a half years ago as a university hire from UC San Diego. Since then she’s worked in the Communities and Sales clouds and she’s super happy to have worked on exciting Microsoft integration products as well as Chatter Feeds. When she’s not developing tests and working on exciting new features, she enjoys taking part in PTOn projects and geeking out over quality and testing best practices. Outside of the office she enjoys volunteering with Seattle high school youth, reading autobiographies of courageous women, and cuddling with her French bulldog.

Nazanin moved to Canada from Iran to do her Masters in Computer Science. She studied there for two years and later started working at Amazon and then Salesforce as a Software Engineer. She has recently moved to Seattle. Her journey has not been an easy one, from being more than 6000 miles apart from her family, to trying to fit in a new culture, but was lucky enough to have crossed path with many inspiring men and women who encouraged and supported her. She now believes it is her turn to pay it back.

Currently she manages an amazing engineering team, dedicated to building our amazing Chatter product. She is passionate about mentoring and guiding others into learning more about Salesforce technology.

Bhavana also loves sharing her experiences and learnings, especially about leadership/soft skills with her peers and directs. She strongly believes in people – that they can achieve just about anything with the right support and opportunities. Hence she continues in her journey to build great teams, a great culture, a spirit of knowledge and learning to make the organization stronger and to build fulfilling careers for her team.

Come join the Dropbox Seattle Engineering team for a night filled with ponderings on the tech space and some wonderful food. Check out some of what we have been busy building as we continue our push into the collaboration workspace and learn about the brains beneath the surface and how we have been able to build this industry-leading sync technology.

We would like to introduce you to some of the amazing women who work here and help us build bleeding edge collaboration tools, as well as show off our beautiful Seattle digs. Located on the 64th floor of the Columbia Tower, we have some incredible views of the greater Seattle area.

The way people work together today is complicated. But at Dropbox, we think it should be simple. That’s why we’re building the world’s simplest, most powerful collaboration platform—one that threads together different tools, platforms, devices, and(most importantly) people. We believe that when everyone and everything is connected, ideas flow more freely, working together is more delightful, and people create amazing things.

At Dropbox we believe in simplifying the way people work together. Come see how we put this philosophy to work.
