Eden Adler is a Software Engineer living in Tel Aviv who holds a B.S. in Neuroscience from the University of Michigan. With a vision to impact the medical field through technology, she enrolled in a coding bootcamp in Tel Aviv, and five months later started working as a software developer at Lemonade.
She is passionate about diversifying tech and bridging the gap between software engineers and the rest of the world.
