Julia Grace is the head of infrastructure engineering at Slack, where she grew her team from 10 people to 60+. She excels in high-velocity environments, especially during hypergrowth, and loves solving challenging engineering problems at scale. She advises early- and mid-stage startups and has extensive experience raising venture capital funding (including from top-tier investors such as Andreessen Horowitz). Previously, she was cofounder and CTO at Tindie, which she sold, and founded and sat on several advisory boards for startups and large multibillion-dollar nonprofits. Julia holds a BS with honors and an MS in computer science from the University of North Carolina, where her research focused on operating systems, including building a distributed system that allowed peer-to-peer data sharing from internet browser caches in low connectivity. She is an avid athlete and former collegiate rower and is always trying to squeeze a run in (even if it’s just chasing her young daughter).
