Sophy Lee is the Chief Technology Officer at HopSkipDrive, the safe and reliable rideshare solution for parents who need to get their children where they need to go when they’re not able to do so themselves. The company was born out of the real frustration of its co-founders who, as busy, safety-obsessed parents themselves, struggled to get their children to all of their activities.
Prior to HopSkipDrive, Sophy was VP of Engineering at Shuddle, a company in the same industry based in San Francisco. She was a core contributor to the product and built an engineering and data science team of 15. Prior to Shuddle, Sophy worked as a web developer for small businesses and nonprofits in the San Francisco Bay Area, and before that founded two startups in online labor markets and online education. During college, she was VP of Operations at DemiDec, an education publication company, where she was in charge of a team of 75.
Sophy has a B.A. in Economics from Harvard University. She is an avid endurance athlete and has raced at over 100 events around the world, including two USA Cycling National Championships and the 2015 Ironman World Championship.
