Jesús Palos


I'm a rising senior in Computer Science at the University of Texas at Austin and currently the Academic Officer for the Hispanic Association of Computer Scientists. I'm passionate about creating a better world and improving lives. Eager to improve myself professionally and personally, I'm always open to new challenges and experiences. I don't know everything, but I know I can figure it out when it comes to it. My current interests in computer science includes full stack development and cyber security.

Experience

Software Engineering Intern

Pandora Media

I'm working as a full stack intern. Created a platform aimed at supplying 3rd party developers and partner companies with the neccessary information, both legal and technical, so they can effectively integrate Pandora into their IoT products. I also worked on migrating key testing tools partners need to ensure the robustness of their integrated applications.

Interests

I love learning new things and solving problems. That love has happened to lead me down the path of software engineering, but I'm always ready to create solutions from a different perspective. I enjoy playing competitive games, playing pool, and enjoying life with my wonderful girlfriend Sabrina.

I spend much of my free time making more "work" for myself. This varies from efforts to bring equity in tech via diversity and inclusion efforts, volunteering locally, and expanding organization responsibilities.
