I am an enterprise sales engineer based in New York City. Having started my career as an application developer, becoming a sales engineer about 6 years later was a dream come true. No one tells you what an “SE” is while you’re in college, there are no mentorship programs available and no communities to guide you. Being an SE at AppDynamics proved a life changing experience for me and I learned many valuable skills from some of my mentors there. I founded SENY to share my knowledge and provide others a space where they can ask questions freely and form a close-knit community that is always ready to help.

Gee Chow, Co-Founder
I'm a business focused technologist based in Brooklyn, New York City. For the past 15+ years, I’ve been creating and implementing software solutions in the enterprise and consumer industries. Nowadays, figuring out complex systems and the intersection between tech and business are among my professional interests. I have been in pre-sales for over 5 years and I enjoy mentoring my peers and this is one of the reasons I co-founded SENY which aims at providing unlimited mentorship without the boundaries of a work environment.
Samuel Pena, Co-Organizer
I am a Senior Sales Engineer with 7+ years in the field of technology. I started as a business analyst in the financial sector before building a career as a sales engineer for companies working to solve complex business problems. My passion is empowering the success of my customers by understanding their goals, problems and opportunities, and creating the best possible solution. Additionally, I get to teach and help mentor the up and coming tech leaders as an adjunct professor at NYU, where I teach a master class in Information Management and Data Analytics. Combining my passion of teaching others and solving challenging business problems has led me to join SENY where I have been fortunate to get to share some of my experiences and best practices in this field.
Eric Glick , Co-Organizer
I currently lead the Enterprise Solutions Engineering team at Slack. Prior to starting my career in Sales Engineering, I worked in management consulting and corporate finance, and have a non-technical degree (Finance). I enjoy working with companies that are looking at ways to become more efficient, challenge the status quo and find unique ways to achieve their business objectives. The SENY group has allowed me to expand my network, discuss industry trends and share best practices. The content during the meetups is fantastic and I always enjoy chatting with folks after the event.

I am a Senior Sales Engineer with over 10 years experience in sales and over 20 years experience in technology. In my role as Sales Engineer I have been successful closing large deals with major companies such as PwC, TD Ameritrade, NRG Energy, Vonage and many more. As one of the co-founders of SENY I saw a great opportunity to create a group of like minded people who can network with their industry peers and learn what others are doing to differentiate themselves on how to become a more successful sales engineer.
