    Join Women Who Code Portland for our first Networking Night of 2019! We’re starting the year off with a theme that is very important to our mission of inspiring women to excel in technology careers: “What Drives You to Stay Working in Tech?” Women from Ampere Computing will discuss their own inspirations, achievements, and career path through the tech industry. For this event, we are hoping to remind all of our members what makes technology so exciting, and what one can do to continue to grow and thrive in their career.

    Neerbhee Verma is a principal engineer focusing on logic design and micro-architecture. Before joining Ampere, she designed custom cores for Snapdragon (mobile) and Centriq (server) chips at Qualcomm for nearly 15 years. She has a Masters in Computer Engineering from North Carolina State University.

    Annie Duong recently joined Ampere as a senior engineering design manager. Prior, she worked at Intel for 17 years with an expertise in CPU logic and circuit design. In addition to her technical work, her passion has been in people, so she job-shaped the role Chief of People Operations to focus on organizational culture and diversity and inclusion. She was a board member of the Oregon chapter of the Women at Intel Network (WIN) and co-chair of the annual WIN conference. She is happy to share her journey and the decision to move back into tech at Ampere as she aspires to inspire the next generation of tech female leaders and work towards an inclusive environment.

    Rashmi Wadwa is an Electrical Engineering graduate from Oklahoma State University. Before joining Ampere, she worked on mobile and server CPU front-end design with Qualcomm in Raleigh, North Carolina for 6 years. More recently she switched gears, moving from the East Coast to the West Cost for a new career challenge. She’s really excited and looking forward to the new venture. In her spare time, she likes to cook, climb, ski and dance.

    Beth Gordon joined Ampere in December as a developer advocate. Before that, she worked at Intel for nearly a decade in roles as a Linux systems administrator and technical marketing engineer. She holds dual degrees in Environmental Science and Spanish from Oregon State University. In her spare time, she does science communication via her dog (https://www.instagram.com/spacewhippet/) on Instagram.
