Megan Poonolly

Head Of Safety

"When I started my career as a new mom at a large law firm, finding quality, flexible childcare was essential to making it all work. Today, I’m a mom of three and I joined Care.com so I could leverage my expertise as a marketplace safety professional to ensure every family has that same access and peace of mind when selecting care for their family."

Megan Poonolly joined Care.com as Head of Safety in October 2020. In this capacity, she oversees the Care.com Safety Program, including policy and product enhancements, and leads a cross-functional team responsible for safety strategy and experience for all users.

Megan joined Care.com after three years as Senior Safety Counsel at Uber, where she advised the company on global safety policies, procedures, and tools affecting millions of drivers, delivery people, riders, and other customers around the world. Before Uber, Megan practiced law at Seyfarth Shaw and Paul Hastings, with special emphasis on background screening and other workforce issues.

She has previously presented at the Professional Background Screeners Association conference and is the author of numerous articles and blog posts regarding workforce safety and other issues.
