-- Door64 is pleased to announce some major changes in its continuing transition to become the central organizing force for STEM professionals in the Austin region. We have welcomed Kim Brushaber to our team as VP of Programs and Eve Richter as Community Liaison. Both Kim and Eve have been active leaders in the technology community for many years, and are well-connected and experienced in the STEM fields. The addition of these two Austin powerhouses to our team will help propel door64 forward in building community and offering outstanding events for STEM professionals.
As part of the new focus, door64 will provide events focused not only on job-seekers and employers in software and other technology fields, but also the broader STEM professional community. Door64 will showcase this new focus in regular speaker events which aim to bring STEM professionals together to learn, connect, and further their careers. Companies in the various STEM fields will be able to share information, promote their companies, and identify candidates in a highly focused manner, with events focusing on specific topics including big data and analytics, UI/UX software development, biotechnology, and more.
“I’m very excited to be working with such a dynamic and growing organization as door64,” said Kim Brushaber, the new VP of Programs. “I’m looking forward to helping door64 to help bring together this amazing community in a way that maximizes value for all participants. Door64 has the reputation and the brand recognition in software and engineering. Now we want to address the other STEM fields that are making Austin one of the most exciting places to do business in the country.”
Door64 will be hosting events throughout the year to highlight its expanded focus. The STEM Professional Fair on February 15th will feature keynotes from Mitch Jacobson, of the Austin Technology Incubator’s Clean Energy Incubator, and Melyssa Fratkin of the Texas Advanced Computing Center. Additional topics will include Biometrics, Encryption Technologies, Avionics, Nanotechnology and more. The Software Job Fair scheduled for February 22nd will focus on UI/UX topics, with confirmed speakers from Microsoft, eBay, Chaotic Moon, Subtle Data, Badgeville, and Blue Vivid. There are still limited exhibition spaces available at both fairs, and registration for attendees is ongoing. In addition to the larger fairs, Door64 will continue to host monthly regional networking events throughout Austin.About door64:
