15. Artur Meyster – From Wall Street to Tech Entrepreneur

Artur is the Founder and CTO of Career Karma. In this role, Artur leverages his background by helping people enter the technology industry. Once an investment banker on Wall Street, Artur discovered his passion for tech and coding, which led him to leave his high-paying job, move to San Francisco, and pursue a start-up journey. 

In this episode, Artur talks about immigrating to the United States from Ukraine and how this ultimately shaped his professional goals. As a young child, Arthur would read books on finance and trading. After leaving Wall Street and moving to the west-coast, Artur met a wide range of people who had also found success as an entrepreneur. He began the Breaking Into Startups Podcast to highlight the stories of people who broke into tech from non-traditional backgrounds.

Artur truly believes that the mindset and angle that you approach a problem has more to do with success than the actual problems you may encounter.
