Skillz Principal Software Engineer, Kathy Kaminski, Attends Rev Boston 2017!


Rev is an annual event that honors the top 20 women in Boston tech who are predicted to be running the tech ecosystem within the next few years. These women have already made their mark in the industry and are on track to accomplish even more. Past honorees include female VPs and directors from PayPal, Uber, Hewlett-Packard, and Adobe.

Honored on this year’s list was our very own Principal Software Engineer, Kathy Kaminski! For the past several years, Kathy has led the team responsible for building and optimizing the Skillz eSports platform’s tournament servers, which enable the 12 million players on our network to engage in fun, exciting multiplayer competitions.

In addition to receiving her award while attending Rev, Kathy was able to connect with fellow honorees during the private retreat at the Battery Wharf Hotel on the Boston Harbor. The event provided key resources and bonding opportunities, with the goal of building a network between the honorees in order to aid them in reaching the next level in their careers. They were also able to have intimate discussions with industry experts on topics such as joining advisory boards, angel investing, and understanding venture capital.

“The event was amazing,” recalls Kathy. “Not only did I get to meet 19 other incredible women, but I also had the opportunity to spend two days learning more about the qualities of a good leader and how to turn around big-picture corporate problems.”

Congratulations, Kathy, and thanks for the recognition, Rev Boston – the entire Skillz team knows firsthand that her award is well-deserved!
