amazing speakers

RVU are proud to sponsor FemTechConf - a community conference for empowering women in the tech world.

We believe our sponsorship ties closely to two of our core beliefs as a business. Wanting to be the change we want to see in the world and leaving the wood pile higher than we found it.

Our speakers

Our very own Giorgia Amici and Natalie Yeo will be speaking at FemTechConf on the benefits and challenges of presenting accurate results. Check out their profiles to hear more about our speakers, and what you can look forward to hearing from them.

Giorgia Amici

Senior software engineer

Giorgia Amici

Senior software engineer

Can you describe your role?

I’m a Senior Software Engineer. This involves building and maintaining our broadband and mobiles pages, collaborating with design, product and analysts to deliver the best possible experience for our customers, and mentoring and sharing knowledge with our youngest team members.


What is the favourite thing about your role?

The constantly changing challenges and the fast pace. 


What inspired you to work in the technology industry?

I wanted the freedom to build useful things for people all around the world.


What has been your highlight working at RVU?

Fixing our algorithm with half a line of code


What drives you to improve/exceed at work?

Knowing that what we do really affects people's lives! 


Describe your RVU experience so far in 3 words

Fast, rewarding, genuine


Where do you hope to see RVU in the next year?

In the office!!! Jokes on the side, I would love to see our team growing even more and for RVU to grow its presence in the tech space. 


Are you looking forward to presenting at FEMTECH 2020? 

YES - both as a speaker but also as an attendee. The list of speakers on their website is impressive!


What can we look forward to hearing from you at the conference? 

Natalie and I will be saying that it doesn’t matter how complicated the markets you operate in are, technology can help you deliver the best experience possible to your users. Yes it might be challenging, but doing all the legwork definitely pays off when your customers are happy and come back to you.


What else do you think can be done to encourage more females to take up careers in Tech? 

More encouragement and support for career shifters; better sharing of tech knowledge inside organisations (for example, could the tech team running small workshops to other departments?); have prominent female tech figures go to speak to schools. 

Natalie Yeo

Associate software engineer

Natalie Yeo

Associate software engineer

Can you describe your role e.g. your main responsibilities, teams you work alongside etc? I’m an associate software engineer. This involves building and maintaining our broadband and mobiles pages,  adding new features and fixing bugs, and daily collaboration  with design, product and analyst teams to deliver the best possible experience for our customers.


What is your favourite thing about your role? Working with and learning from great people - I particularly enjoy being able to pair on problems. Plus, every day is different!


What inspired you to work in the technology industry? Technology is disrupting every aspect of our lives. Without a doubt it’s the most exciting industry to be in…..who wouldn’t want to work in tech right now?!


What has been your highlight working at RVU? This is a tough question as there have been so many. I have to say it’s being given the opportunity to work on so many cool projects in different domains - from rebuilding our careers website from scratch and building our new broadband ads, to migrating our projects to a new kubernetes cluster.


What drives you to improve/exceed at work? Knowing that I am working on a platform that is used by millions of consumers - and empowering them to make smarter decisions.


Describe your RVU experience so far in 3 words Supported, varied, fun!


Where do you hope to see RVU in the next year? I want RVU to be on everyone’s radar. Everyone should know who we are and what we do. 


Are you looking forward to presenting at FEMTECH 2020? YES! Very excited is an understatement.


What can we look forward to hearing from you at the conference? Giorgia and I will be saying that it doesn’t matter how complicated the markets you operate in are - technology can help you deliver the best experience possible to your users. Yes it might be challenging, but doing all the legwork definitely pays off when your customers are happy and come back to you.


What else do you think can be done to encourage more females to take up careers in Tech? I think more can be done earlier on from a younger age - encouragement needs to come from parents, schools and teachers so that girls see this as a viable career for them. Initiatives teaching girls to code are great and we need more of these - and we also need more visible female role models in tech.
