Create Something from Nothing

Maia Bittner '11 Co-Founder and CTO, RocksBox

Maia's passion for start-ups and entrepreneurship stems from her love of creating something from nothing. After getting her feet wet as a technical cofounder of The Hikery in 2011, she went on to work for Pierce Washington Consulting as a Software Engineer in 2012. Shortly there after, Maia went on to co-found RocksBox, a startup in downtown San Francisco that makes it easy and affordable for women to feel great about the way they look. Maia’s active role at RocksBox is CTO where she manages the engineering team and sets the technical vision for the company.

“The most important thing I learned at Olin was how to communicate with people who aren’t engineers. In general Oliners are really great at communicating across disciplines because we aren’t siloed.”
