She has produced more than 50 developer conferences and hackathons, including SheCodes – a one-day conference for women technologists that included Facebook, Google, GitHub, Hackbright, Mozilla, X and Yahoo. Julie holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from MIT and Stanford, respectively, both in management science. She currently serves as an advisor to Coactive AI and serves as regular speaker on topics including AI, marketing, and diversity in technology.
“I am thrilled to bring on an industry veteran like Julie Choi. She has an impressive track record of building technical communities and brands that demonstrate the significant impact she has had at the previous companies where she has been employed,” says Andrew Feldman, CEO and co-founder of Cerebras Systems. “Her breadth of experience across product and technology marketing, communications, developer relations, DEI, as well as her knowledge of hardware, software and services, will bring incredible value to the company and to our customers.”

Joining the company at this point in its history is an honor for me, and I look forward to making a significant impact.”
