Erica Lockheimer is the vice president of software engineering at LinkedIn Learning.
Erica Lockheimer joined LinkedIn in 2010 as a senior engineering manager on the growth engineering team, where she focused on increasing growth in new members and deepening engagement with members across the company's products. She was responsible for building the growth team from the ground up, and today it is a high-performing team of more than 100 employees. In the four years she was with the growth team, Erica advanced in her own career, becoming senior director of growth engineering. In 2018, she moved on to her next play at LinkedIn and is now the VP of engineering for the LinkedIn Learning team, formerly known as Lynda.com. She is also responsible for the LinkedIn Women In Tech (WIT) initiative that is focused on empowering women in technical roles within the company. Prior to LinkedIn, Erica worked at Good Technology as director of server engineering to securely manage and synchronize email and calendar data between Exchange and mobile devices. She loves the challenge of starting with something nascent and carving out the right strategy, hiring the best people, and plotting a course to drive results. In 2014 and 2015, Erica was voted amongst the top 22 women engineers in the world by Business Insider. Erica is a San Francisco Bay Area native, has two kids, loves to run, and is a graduate of San Jose State University with a BS in computer engineering.
