Tereza Iofciu is a Data Scientist at mytaxi in Hamburg, working on cool projects. She started the PyLadies Hamburg group and is now co-organising the meetups together with some awesome ladies.

Previously she worked as Data Scientist for XING AG. She got her PhD in CS in Information Retrieval at L3S Research Institute in Hannover, Germany.

• Host

"With empathy, transparency and a bit of magic, we are building products beyond the scope of the traditional Volkswagen core business in order to create a new digital ecosystem for the group's brands.

The Volkswagen Digital:Lab philosophy resembles a new kind of cooperation. We strongly believe in low-hierarchy and equality-based culture."

Join their team:

• Gender policy

We believe knowledge is for all and at the same time our events aim primarily to empower women tech community. We request non female attendees to be aware of these situation and make their presence discrete. Eg. by coming with a female plus one to ensure gender balance, avoiding to be heard more than the rest of the attendees in discussions and question sections.

• Photography / video consent

We take photos and videos during the event to use for documentation and in social media such as here in Photo albums, Facebook, Twitter, etc. By coming to the meetup, you willingly give consent to take photos and videos of you. If you do not want to give your consent, please let us know at check-in.
