Silicon Valley Latino is thrilled to highlight the invaluable insights and experiences shared by one of our esteemed SVL Advisory Board Members, Jose Benitez Cong. Employee number 21 at Humane, a cutting-edge tech company, Jose's journey is not just a career tale but a narrative of passion, purpose, and the pursuit of creating meaningful connections in the world of technology.
Embracing Change and Leading Innovation: A Humane Perspective
Jose proudly wears the badge of "Employee #21," having embarked on his Humane adventure since the summer of 2020. As the VP of Talent/Culture, he orchestrates a symphony of responsibilities, overseeing organizational design, talent, and employee experiences, recruiting, DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging), and nurturing the very culture that defines Humane.
What makes Jose's narrative intriguing is his unconventional route to Humane. After a two-year hiatus as a stay-at-home dad, Jose was drawn to Humane's mission. With a rich career background, including stints at tech giants like Nvidia, Apple, and Nest Labs, Humane spoke to him on a profound level. It wasn't just about pioneering a revolutionary user experience but also about innovating the art of building a company from a people-centric perspective.
Investing in People, Org Design, and Diversity Focus
For Jose, Humane presented an unparalleled opportunity to invest heavily in organizational design, team building, and diversity focus. Drawing from his extensive career, he saw this as the most important project to date. As a father, he felt a compelling responsibility to create technology experiences that leverage the Intelligence Age, blending the power of AI, connectivity, and technology to enable us to be present and connected simultaneously.
Building a Humane Future
At Humane, the ethos revolves around building innovative technology that feels familiar, natural, and human. Their commitment to improving the human experience is evident in products designed with good intentions. The goal is to reconnect us with ourselves, each other, and the world around us. Trust is paramount, and every interaction is crafted to feel magical, bringing joy to users.
Founded on the principle that everyone deserves more from technology, Humane, with Jose's leadership, is navigating the future by embracing the Intelligence Age. It's not just about revolutionizing technology; it's about creating experiences that are profoundly human in the digital era.
Jose's journey at Humane encapsulates the essence of that Silicon Valley Latino attitude and spirit — innovation, diversity, and a relentless pursuit of better technology that serves humanity. We're excited to witness the impact of Humane's work under the guidance of Latino leaders like Jose, shaping the future of tech with a human touch.
