MATRIXX focuses on software development and has employees across the U.S., Europe, Middle East, Asia and the Pacific Rim. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, MATRIXX strives for workplace diversity employing women across nearly 40% of the company’s technical and engineering roles. Jennifer is a passionate advocate for women to take leadership roles in entrepreneurship and innovation.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the Silicon Valley Business Journal alongside an impressive group of women, each of whom is affecting real change in their respective industries,” said Kyriakakis. “I am proud to be part of a leadership team that is offering opportunities for women in tech and Silicon Valley.”
