    Hi everyone! My name is Venkat Venkataraman and I am currently Sr. Director of Engineering at Hopin. I run an org of about 120 people - Product Development, Data Engineering & ML, Quality & Productivity Engineering, and Shared Services. I love all challenges that come with scale, and at this point Hopin is a rocket ship with a number of scale-related challenges.
