Data & Founding team @ Multitudes
Jenny is a data enthusiast and product lead of a Kiwi team analytics startup, Multitudes, which provides ethical engineering metrics. Having a keen interest in how technology impacts our world, she is interested in exploring how we can use data in ways that are not reductive but empowering. Before Multitudes, she built data products at Xero.
Outside of work, Jenny has been involved in several organisations around DEI, climate action, and youth civic engagement. She is currently a data ethics facilitator at Colab Cohorts’ Equitable Product course. She is also co-founder and editor of Climate Club, a weekly newsletter for busy folks who care about climate change.
Engineering metrics, minus the creepiness
Engineering metrics that give teams and managers better visibility over productivity and team health have been gaining popularity. But we’ve also heard the horror stories: layoffs based on lines of code, Big Brother-esque monitoring of behaviour.
How might we use metrics to help us improve what matters in a way that supports, not damages, an empowering and sustainable engineering team culture?
