Lead People & Talent
Postmates Inc.

Is currently the Lead of People, at the Silicon Valley-based startup, Postmates — where I oversee all talent acquisition, retention, and human resources strategies for the venture-backed firm that has scaled across 300 U.S. cities and Mexico. As the on-demand delivery startup leverages smart algorithms to connect people with the products & goods sold by local businesses in their cities, I continue to oversee the long-term professional growth of engineers, coders, designers, marketers, policy and public affairs professionals in support of the company’s $1.2 billion in revenue annually.

Previously, I’ve designed HR campaigns from the ground up for Yahoo!, Yelp, and BrightRoll, while also implementing long-term culture and talent acquisition strategies for those companies. By investing in how to build dynamic company culture, while younger companies experience rapid growth and scale, I’ve positioned herself as one of the most coveted human resource professionals in the Silicon Valley, and one of the few Latinas in the Tech community to build People teams from scratch across several successful multi-billion dollar firms.
