Annie Sexton

Product Developer  •  Software Engineer

I’m a multi-faceted product developer that’s passionate about designing and developing great software on the web.


Pronouns: she/her

In my ten years working as an engineer, I’ve fallen in love with every aspect of product development, from to programming, to strategy, to design. In my current role as a product analyst at Heroku, I perform customer research to identify common pain points and reduce load on support. I also design and build new tools to address these opportunities to improve customers' experience. While my roots are in programming, I’ve collected a wide breadth of skills across many areas of expertise, thanks to my endless curiosity and hunger for learning.

Outside of work I love to travel, cook and write fiction. I was born and raised in the heart of Texas in Austin, and in 2019, after a considerable amount of globe-trotting, I decided to make a home for myself in the lush Pacific Northwest, in Portland, Oregon.
