Message from Artur
I'm a self-taught software engineer who is working for a startup in San Francisco. After spending 3 years in investment banking, I discovered a passion for tech and coding which led me to leave my high paying job and set out on a journey into tech.
During that process I ended up meeting so many people who were college dropouts, poker players, veterans, consultants, investment bankers, athletes, musicians and actors who all ended up with great jobs in tech.
That experience led me to start the Breaking Into Startups Podcast where we feature inspiring stories of people who broke into tech from non-traditional backgrounds. Our goal is to demystify the various roles available in startups and help people take action toward the different careers in tech.
Since launch we've been featured in TechCrunch, RollingOut Magazine, BlackEnterprise, GiJobs and named Top Podcast for Entrepreneurs in 2017 by the Entrepreneur Magazine.
