Marissa Mayer

Marissa Mayer

From the time she joined Google in 1999 as the first female engineer, Marissa Mayer has had a significant impact on the company’s development, shaping the design of Google’s search interface and defining must-have applications like Gmail, Google News and lately Google Chrome, the operating and browser system that is set to challenge Microsoft Windows. She’s known as the hot company’s “it girl” and has often put a public face on Google, in television shows and in magazines as well as on the social scene of her San Francisco base.

Mayer holds degrees in symbolic systems and computer science from Stanford University, both specialized in Artificial Intelligence, and according to Google’s own corporate information, she had several AI patents registered in her name. Mayer has later returned to Stanford University to teach introductory computer programming classes to more than 3.000 students – all while working full time at Google!

In recognition of her highly successful decade with Google, Fortune Magazine listed Mayer 44th on their top 50 most powerful women in business of 2009. Turning only 35 this year, she became the youngest woman ever to enter the list in 2008.
