From Silicon Valley to Mexico: YouTube at Wizeline 2018



YouTube and Wizeline Academy present an evening for local technical talent to discuss the emerging “Silicon Valley” of Mexico. Attendees 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, as well as offer access to YouTube’s Staffing team to establish potential future relationships and gain more insights into the open engineering roles at YouTube.

At the end, 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 engineering 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.
