Lori Hill, Software Engineer


A successful “relauncher,” Lori Hill is a software engineer working on iOS apps for NBCUniversal. Most recently, her team launched a new app for the Today show, which was featured in the “New apps we love” section of the App Store.

Lori was a mainframe software developer for the first 10 years of her career. Following the birth of her second child, she left her career and didn’t return to a corporate technical career for 22 years.

Lori’s relaunch journey began with a nine-month training course in iOS development. She spent the next four years writing apps as an independent developer and sharpening her skills while conducting a discouraging job search as a relauncher without recent formal experience. Ultimately, networking and the advocacy of a woman who recognized her potential landed Lori a job in which she is thriving as an iOS developer at NBCUniversal.

Lori received the Phoenix Award honoring a Return to Work Standout at the 2017 Women Who Code #applaudher awards.
