Hi! I’m Michelle Lim, and I live in NYC. I’m the Growth Lead at Warp. I also write essays on engineering, society, and film. You can find me at Twitter, Linkedin, Github or email.

I joined Warp as the first software engineer. Currently, I’m running our Growth team, which spans product, data, and marketing. More on the transition here.

I also invest in and support early-stage startups, specializing in growth.

In my free time, I watch films and musicals with friends, swim, and do Pilates. I’m open to advising companies. You can email me at limxlmichelle@gmail.com.
