Sandy Jen, along with friends Seth Sternberg and Elaine Wherry, started Meebo in 2005 with one goal in mind: to connect people to their friends across the Web. Meebo integrates all social networks and communications channels into a single, simple-to-use solution and enables users to easily share content and communicate in real time with their friends. As co-founder and VP of Engineering, Jen has ultimately been responsible for ensuring that Meebo’s engineering efforts are well equipped to handle all the people and the 8,000+ websites that use Meebo today. The company recently launched its Meebo MiniBar browser extension, which enables people to take Meebo across the entire Internet, check-in and stay connected while browsing the Web. Jen began her engineering career at San Jose-based Xilinx—the first semiconductor company—as an enterprise software developer. Originally an aspiring art student, Jen switched gears and decided to help start Meebo.
