Rachel Cohen used to be a sports reporter and now she’s a software engineer. She was pleasantly surprised to learn the two jobs were more alike than it would seem. After more than 16 years covering everything from Olympic figure skating to the NFL antitrust exemption, Rachel was ready for a new challenge and attended the Grace Hopper Program, an all-women software engineering immersive. She then joined the Wall Street Journal, where she built software for the newsroom, before moving on to Spotify in July 2020. In the summer, you can find Rachel swimming in the ocean off Brighton Beach.
