About Event

Join us for an exclusive session with Entrepreneur First alum Zehan Wang to discuss tech hiring and team building.

Zehan was the co-founder and CTO of Magic Pony Technology which was acquired by Twitter in 2016 for a reported $150m, just over a year after the EF3 Demo Day. During his time at Twitter, he took on the role of engineering manager and later helped form (and then headed up) the applied research group within Twitter Cortex.

Prior to doing start-ups, Zehan completed a PhD at Imperial College London in medical image analysis and also holds a masters in joint mathematics and computer science.

In this interactive session, Zehan will share some of his learnings and you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you have about the topic.

The session will be held on Zoom and is open exclusively to EF alumni.

About this event

Zehan has experienced growing Magic Pony from 2 to 14 before the acquisition by Twitter, and then again from 6 to ~50 in the last two years at Twitter.

  • Making the transition from tech lead to manager

  • Keen to understand the ramp up from startup to scaled organisations

  • Interested to learn about the people manager skills you absolutely need to have to set your teams up for success
