Jess Lee        

Partner at Sequoia Capital / Co-Founder & CEO of Polyvore

Jess is the co-founder and vice president of product management of Polyvore, a social shopping platform. At Polyvore, she is responsible for product vision and user experience, but has done a little bit of everything from writing code to selling ads to washing dishes.

Prior to co-founding Polyvore, Jess was a product manager at Google, where she worked on Google Maps and launched features like My Maps and draggable driving directions. After four years at Google, Jess became hopelessly addicted to making Polyvore sets and decided the only cure was to join the Polyvore team. Jess has a degree in computer science from Stanford University.
