Creating purposeful technology with Jenny Zhang


In this episode, we chat with Jenny Zhang — a software engineer and writer based in Canada. In our conversation, we explore her circuitous path to software development, what it means to be a full stack engineer, her considerations of privacy and safety in voice datasets, values and career trajectories, and much more. Her purpose-driven approach to technology development comes through clearly throughout our time with her, and (we think) offers up lessons to anyone seeking to generate beneficial impact in the tech industry.
