From Mexico To Silicon Valley

October 9, 2018, 11:00 PM UTC – October 10, 2018, 2:00 AM UTC

Startup Grind has partnered with YouTube and Wizeline Academy to present an evening to discuss the emerging “Silicon Valley” of Mexico. You will learn about the unique experiences and challenges YouTube engineers face, the impact their work has on YouTube’s mission to better serve billions of YouTube users. After the talk and panel, enjoy craft beer and tacos al pastor sponsored by YouTube!

About this event

2 Wizeliners and 3 YouTubers/Googlers will participate in an interesting panel discussion to talk about their experiences and answer any questions you may have.

Our goals are to:

  • Engage with talent in Mexico and introduce them to the unique technical challenges faced at YouTube and Google.
  • Support tech-focused initiatives in Guadalajara, which is building itself up as “The Silicon Valley of Mexico”, as well as Mexico City for community building and to establish relationships with the YouTube Staffing team for future job opportunities.
  • Connect with and build a strong relationship between YouTube and the Mexican tech community.
