Talk abstract: Vigorous communication as the key ingredient of a successful data science career. In a fireside chat with David Loughlan, Roberto will distill key lessons from his career across data science and product, with a particular focus on effective communication to senior leadership as the key element and limiting factor in many data science careers. Q&A to follow.
Bio: Roberto is a Director of data science at Instagram supporting 100+ data scientist across Instagram Home and Instagram Creators and Reels. Before Instagram, he spent 10 years working at then-startups and growth stage companies, including being the first data scientist at Etsy (NASDAQ:ETSY), and at Wealthfront, a Senior Director of Product at Instacart, and a VP of Product at Faire. Roberto was born and raised in Italy, moved to the US when he was too old to lose his accent, and has moved to London a few months ago to start Instagram’s first international office (we are hiring!).
