About Me

I’m Jess Lee. I live in Silicon Valley, but I grew up in Hong Kong. I moved to the Bay Area in 2000 to attend Stanford University, where I studied Computer Science. I’m half-Chinese and half-Japanese.

After college, I worked at Google for 4 years, where I spent most of my time as a product manager for Google Maps. Some of the features I launched included:

I left Google in March 2008 to join a tiny startup called Polyvore, because I fell in love with it. Luckily the startup life is everything I hoped it would be and more! At Polyvore, I’m mainly responsible for product vision & user experience, but along the way I’ve done a little bit of everything, from writing code to selling ads to washing dishes. I became CEO in January 2012.

My hobbies/interests include reading manga, drawing people (check out my artwork ), tracking down strange internet memes (like the war on Scientology), attending dorky comic book conventions, and eating delicious foods (especially bacon).
