Ariel Lopez

Founder and CEO

I'm a career coach, entrepreneur, and public speaker with an expertise in digital media and technology.  With over 5 years of hands-on recruiting experience, I've worked with tons of startups and major brands like Amazon to help them build pipelines of talent. I've worked with thousands of marketing, advertising, and tech professionals to help them grow in their careers and find lucrative opportunities. Most recently, I've worked with General Assembly, to assist hundreds of transitioning students to find their own paths in technology.

I am the founder of 2020Shift, a social enterprise that’s designed to educate minority millennials on careers in digital media and technology. We focus on bridging the gap of diverse talent to non-engineering opportunities through access to jobs, resources, and professional development. Our vision is to diversify the tech economy with long-term sustainable impact by building a community of talented young professionals from underserved communities in the space. Some of our partners include: AlleyNYC, Pandora, Buffer, Yelp, LinkedIn and more.

I am also a member of Forbes Coaches Council, an invite only organization created by Forbes and YEC to provide thought leadership opportunities to top business and career coaches.
