Sophie Alpert


Sophie leads the software engineering team at Humu, where her first priority is making sure that the people around her are supported as human beings. On the technical side, she strives to make sure that Humu's product and infrastructure are high-quality, robust, accessible, and considerate. Before Humu, Sophie managed the team at Facebook that developed React, an open-source library used by 1 in 4 software developers worldwide.

Sophie really enjoys good food, is legally considered a celebrity by the United Kingdom's Advertising Standards Authority, and idly dreams of one day opening a queer café–library.
