Famous Women Engineers

Number 31: Microsoft’s Lili Cheng

No. 31: Microsoft's Lili Cheng

It’s something we all love to do: dream big dreams of our futures. That is what Lili Cheng did as a little girl and now she is a distinguished engineer in Microsoft’s AI & Research division. Cheng is a 20-year Microsoft veteran currently working on smart, conversational bots (the Microsoft Bot Framework). In other words, Microsoft has no intention of ceding the voice interface market to Amazon Alexa, and Cheng is charged with making that so.

And, she helped organize a two-day gathering of all things bot in New York known as Botness. And before all that, she was the director of user experience for Microsoft Windows.

Internally, she’s known as the person behind Kodu Game Lab, a game for teaching kids programming, created seven years ago.

Thank you for these 31 great examples of big dreamers, big learners and big doers, Business Insider! Here’s to an inspiration month of learning about Engineers Like You! Thanks!!!

Number 30: 23andMe’s Joyce Tung

No. 30: 23andMe's Joyce Tung

When she was just a little girl she dreamed of her own success, just like you. And now, Joyce Tung, is vice president of research at 23andMe.

She studied and received her PhD is in biology and genetics and has a minor in computer science. So she is actually not an engineer. But she is a key player at the company that pioneered home genetic tests. Business professionals expect this to become a $10 billion industry by 2020. That’s a huge deal! This new kind of work is going to have a huge impact on how people understand their ancestry and their bodies.

Tung is leading a team of scientists responsible for the company’s research services that is beginning to influence everything from clinical treatment and drug development to insights into human development.

Number 29: Slack’s Bear Douglas

No. 29: Slack's Bear Douglas

Bear DouglasTwitter

Bear Douglas is the Developer Advocacy Lead at Slack.

Douglas just joined Slack from Twitter to help it serve and attract developers. There are already hundreds of apps that integrate with Slack but Slack is so serious about this area, it is investing in Slack-based startups.

Douglas is well-known from her time in this same role Twitter. (And Twitter poached her from doing the same job at Facebook.)

Twitter offered a service called Fabric, a tool that helps them improve their apps. She helped convince 580,000 developers to use Fabric. Twitter just sold it to Google in January.

Although her background is in anthropology, archaeologic and economics by education, she was a kid coder who self-taught herself mobile apps and has earned the respect of the dev community.

Thank you, Business Insider, for introducing these world class engineers to us!
