Code for Venezuela Fireside Chat

In this episode I spoke with Joaquin Delgado, PhD a Venezuelan-American Engineer and Head of Music Search-Applied Sciences at Amazon music. Joaquin is a veteran from Silicon Valley Startups and tech giants such as Oracle, Intel, Yahoo and was a cofounder for Lending Club. We spoke about his experience and the advice he has for people looking to build a career in Silicon Valley and the field of business analytics.
I had the opportunity to record this episode in front of a live audience as part of the 2020 Data Analytics Hackathon organized by Code for Venezuela and students from the Hult International Business School.
During this particular event more than 100 students and volunteers got to work together to build data analytics solutions to benefit Medicos por la salud, a Venezuelan non-for-profit at the front lines of the current health crisis in Venezuela.
