Eve Andersson has a cool tech job: she's in charge of accessibility across all of Google.




Andersson has been working at Google for 13 years and turned accessibility from a grassroots effort to an area of focus for hundreds of employees.




Andersson spoke with Business Insider about her favorite Google accessibility features, why she's an "integrator" instead of trying to achieve work-life balance, and her advice for women and people in minority groups trying to break into the tech industry.
