Having the right skills is just one of the challenges people face.

Jessica Clayton – Senior Product Manager, Zorroa & SF Leadership Team Member, Out in Tech


Jessica is a Senior Product Manager at Zorroa, a visual machine learning company. The path here was less than straight-forward. 5 years ago she couldnt land a job at a tech company despite hundreds of conversations. So, she spun up her own consulting firm, worked retail and in fitness to help with bills, and finally landed her first tech job after a year-long hunt. She recently joined Zorroa to fulfill her dream of making ethical machine learning available to the masses.
