Meet the People Behind the Platform | Preeti Shukla

Welcome to JustFund’s People Behind the Platform series, where we introduce our incredible team! Today, we are thrilled to introduce Preeti Shukla, Head of Product and Engineering.


Before joining this incredible JustFund team, I spent 18 years leading development of B2B products and running a B2C Startup in the home design space. I learned the fundamentals of building B2B products at Oracle before leading development of SaaS products at Workday. More recently, I ran a home design tech for good startup while volunteering at a local NGO and organizing hunger drives at schools

When I heard about what JustFund was doing, I had to be part of it! I spent recent years finding my passion for contributing to tech for good products and volunteering at NGOs. I believe people, especially young kids should be given a nurturing environment to prosper where not only their basic needs are met but also where they are encouraged to dream and unleash their full potential. When I came across JustFund, I saw a perfect opportunity to blend my passion for technology and passion for tech for good products.

Outside of JustFund, I’m a doting mom of 2, wife, daughter, and a friend who believes in the strength of rewarding human relationships and being intentional about maintaining a happy and positive mindset . I’m passionate about following the latest developments in space science, meditating and performing karaoke in my free time. I also love mentoring women in tech. Find me on LinkedIn, I’d love to grab virtual coffee.
