Shirin Ghaffary is a senior Vox correspondent covering the social media industry. Previously, Ghaffary worked at BuzzFeed News, the San Francisco Chronicle, and TechCrunch.

Since last fall, Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon has been running one of the largest investment banks in the world.

The Wall Street veteran and part-time EDM DJ (who reportedly used his musical side gig to win business with Spotify) is set to speak with Recode’s Kara Swisher and Teddy Schleifer at this year’s Code Conference.

We look forward to asking Solomon about where he sees the economy headed, what role technology plays in that, what the company is doing differently since the 2008 financial crisis, and what he thinks about the slew of tech IPOs this year.

Solomon will speak with Swisher and Schleifer at 9:40 am PT on Tuesday, June 11.

In the meantime, if you want to know more about the finance titan and part-time DJ, you can find him hanging out with billionaires on Instagram — his social media platform of choice. Or read our coverage of how his firm is trying to win the race to build technology that could make some of its own business obsolete, woo tech startups, and get into the credit card business with Apple.

Recode and Vox have joined forces to uncover and explain how our digital world is changing — and changing us. Subscribe to Recode podcasts to hear Kara Swisher and Peter Kafka lead the tough conversations the technology industry needs today.
