The Team

Gio Fernandez-Kincade

Gio has been working with data, architecting systems, and leading teams of engineers for over a decade. At Etsy he was a Staff Software Engineer that lead the Search Ranking Team, which was responsible for the effectiveness and fairness of Etsy’s core search algorithm, and previously lead the Search Experience Team which worked on the entire Search User Experience. Prior to working at Etsy, Gio worked at CapitalIQ where he designed, built, and maintained a multi-terabyte database, real-time processing-system, and search engine for globally-sourced financial reports. On weekends and early in the morning you can find him surfing in sunny Rockaway Beach, NY.

Ara Kim

Ara has been working at the intersection of data, product development, and operations since 2005. She understands how data systems and people systems need to interact to produce good work, especially in fast-paced environments at scale. Ara has previously worked at Google, where she grew and managed a large data operations group powering Google’s speech recognition and synthesis algorithms in over 60 languages; at Etsy, where she managed the internationalization of their site and the first launches into non-US markets; and at the New York Public Library, as a Senior Project Manager with NYPL Labs, a team considering the future of digital libraries.

Magera Holton

Magera most recently managed the Design Systems Team at Etsy, responsible for building core UX components and design guidelines utilized by product teams every day across the organization. Previously, she managed Buyer Experience, which focused on streamlining the purchasing experience and bringing Etsy’s unique content to the forefront. As an individual contributor at Etsy, she patiently deconstructed and redesigned the site’s two most critical user flows: checkout and the listing process. When she’s not working with clients, you can find her obsessing over renovations to her new Rockaway home. And surfing, of course.
