Emma Lawler

Entrepreneur and product designer


I’m the co-founder of Moonlight, a professional community of remote software developers and designers. My co-founder and I started the company in 2017, when we were ready to leave San Francisco but still have access to remote software jobs. Since then, we have grown the platform to thousands of developers and companies who are interested in working together remotely.  

You can read more about how we built Moonlight in my recent interview with IndieHackers, or on the Software Engineering Daily episode about our journey.

I grew up in Colorado, went to undergraduate and design graduate school in Boulder, and gained startup and tech company literacy in San Francisco while working at companies like AKQA and Fitbit.

Conferences and workshops

I've taken part or spoken at design and entrepreneurship conferences around the world. Most recently, at the Inflection Conference, Moving Forward Conference, Denver Startup Week, Fullstack Toronto, TechWomen delegation trip, Global Entrepreneurship Summit, and Project Entrepreneur
