Event Details

Interested in pursuing a career with an exciting startup? 
Is a startup right for you?

Top startups offer amazing opportunities to work with dynamic teams on exciting projects, solving challenging problems. Roles where you can have impact and be part of something special.

ThinkB1G works with an elite group of San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and Boston startups seeking exceptional students & new grads to join their teams. Led by visionary leaders with disruptive, game-changing products, these companies offer opportunities to work with amazing people on exciting projects and technologies.

ThinkB1G will lead a discussion on what startups are looking for, the skills to develop to become a highly sought after candidate, how to obtain these both inside and outside the classroom, and best practices for finding opportunities, standing out, and engaging startups.

Joining us for the talk via Hangouts will be Abishek Das, Head of Engineering at Onera. Onera is an early-stage San Francisco-based technology company that aims to use discrete algorithms and machine learning to help some of the largest multi-channel retailers solve real-time optimization problems. The technical co-founder graduated with a Ph. D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon and built several real-world applied algorithms previously at Facebook, BloomReach and Google.
