I’m Kitty. I’m a Berlin-based non-binary trans frontend engineer with over a decade of experience, currently focused on accessibility, diversity and inclusion. In recent years, I have led engineering teams at both Gorillas and N26 for several years, and help scale up both companies. I am currently the VP of Engineering at Cofenster.
