Trying to source a quote by the badass trans computer scientist Sophie Wilson, anybody know where the original quote is from?

"Most engineers like to proceed from A to B to C in a series of logical steps. I’m the rare engineer who says the answer is obviously Z and we will get on with that while you guys work out how to do all the intermediate steps. It makes me a dangerous person to employ in IT but a useful one."

I've found this link but it's a little unclear (to me anyway) if it's from an interview or skimmed from something else.
