Famous Women Engineers

Number 16: Docker’s Marianna Tessel

No. 16: Docker's Marianna Tessel

When little girls dream big, they do big things. That’s the story behind Marianna Tessel. Now she is the senior vice president of engineering at Docker. Docker invented a whole new category of software development tools called containers that have, in a few short years, taken the tech industry by storm.

Tessel left her VP of engineering job at VMware a couple of years ago. Containers are seen as the disruptive technological heir to the tech that VMware invented in the 1990s, (known as virtualization). So it was a major score for Docker when Tessel joined its team.

Even before VMware, she had a long history of building engineering teams. She worked as a VP of engineering at Ariba and at early handheld device maker General Magic before that.

Thank you Business Insider for this incredible list of world class engineers!
