Erica Yingling

Software Engineer


Erica joined the Product team at NFX as a fullstack software engineer in 2017. With a passion for learning about entrepreneurship and improving processes through software, she fit right in with the NFX culture. She has a profound appreciation for technology’s  impact on social change and ability to break barriers. At NFX, she hopes to connect founders and VCs more quickly and painlessly.

Prior to NFX, Erica was a Maryland native, where she obtained her Real Estate license to show homes during her free time in college. She also interned at an oncology lab in the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. Although she comes from a scientific background, she has never siloed herself to one field. Instead, she enjoys finding common ground between the worlds of business and science/technology.


Outside of work, Erica loves running along the Embarcadero and pursuing her goal of becoming a marathon runner.
