vice president, JPMorgan Chase
Most investment banking technologists don't maintain a hilarious Twitter account or re-blog GIFs on their Tumblr. But then there's Amber Baldet.
Baldet does essential work as a VP at JPMorgan Chase, including the implementation of technology solutions for global clients and product development. What really makes her stand out, though, is her online presence and side projects.
She volunteers and teaches an ethics course for Girls Who Code and is certified as an online counseling and suicide intervention specialist. She spoke this past year at DefCon about suicide prevention and how the tech community can harness their skills to help.
The work she's doing both inside and outside her job makes Baldet worth watching.
