Computer engineering alumni Virginie Adams and Jon Fuller have been recognized among Indiana’s leading tech builders, based on their selection for the Tech 25 Class of 2017, by TechPoint. Both were among 11 honorees in the product development sector.

TechPoint annually honors individuals who are using their skills to help grow the state’s tech and tech-enabled companies.

Adams manages strategic initiatives as a senior technical program manager for Salesforce. She has worked for the Indianapolis-based company since 2013, when she earned a master’s degree in engineering management from Rose-Hulman. That supplemented the bachelor’s degree in computer engineering and mathematics she earned from the institute in 2012. Adams is committed to improving gender diversity within the tech community, starting the Indianapolis chapter of Girl Develop It. Under her guidance the organization has grown to have more than 1,000 members.

Fuller, a 2004 graduate, is director of software engineering at Software Engineering Professionals. He is responsible for improving the entrepreneurial spirit and technical excellence within the Carmel, Ind., company. He has experience working with complex software products, including embedded systems, mobile applications and enterprise scale systems. Fuller’s interest in writing code, developed at Rose-Hulman, had him helping to start Indianapolis Code and Coffee, which now has four locations through the city, and Indy Software Artisans, a group of central Indiana software developers that share best practices and embrace continuous learning. He also is a director of IndyHackers, which hosts special developer-centric events.

A total of 58 Indiana technology companies nominated a team member for this year’s Tech 25 Class.

TechPoint is an independent organization representing and promoting the growth of Indiana’s tech ecosystem.
