Founder & CEO
Ruby Guillen is CEO and Founder of Humanistic Technologies, Inc. (HTI), leading and driving the organization’s purpose to empower human dignity through technology. Ruby’s captivating personal history of technical education in the US Air Force, and as a client and a professional within government systems of care, has given her the vision to unite the two typically disparate fields of Computer Information Systems and Social Work. After moving from military active duty to reserve status, in 1990 Ruby launched her social worker career based on a fierce dedication to being an advocate for the underrepresented. Through two decades as a technically-driven social worker partnering with emergency agencies to investigate severe injury/ child fatality cases, Ruby honed her deep knowledge of the social service system culture and complex data processing protocols, and its strengths and flaws. Ruby now expertly leads development of software-based solutions to address complex social service problems faced by government, nonprofit and private organizations. HTI’s projects successfully replace non-tech-based methods in social services to vastly improve outcomes for client companies, as well as quality of life for society’s most marginalized populations. Ruby is now a highly respected Hacktivist who has partnered to share her expertise and genius at hackathons that were sponsored by Facebook, Google, The White House, the US Department of Health & Human Services, county, municipals and other prestigious groups. Ruby earned her BA and MA in Social Work from California State University of Long Beach as well as an additional degree in Computer Information Systems from Devry Technical College.
