Hey there!

I'm Shivam Sharma, a full stack software engineer with a passion for applied problem solving & learning opportunities

Drop me a line [email protected]

Background

I'm a 21 year old senior at the University of California, San Diego in La Jolla, CA expecting to graduate in June 2018. I have a love for all aspects of technology and applied problem solving and am currently pursuing my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. In September 2018 I will be starting at LinkedIn in San Francisco, CA as a Software Engineer working on the LinkedIn Sales Solutions team.

As a full stack software engineer I like to bring together a wide variety of software development experience in order to bring refined, functional, and scalable products to life. I have had the amazing oppurtunity to hone my skills over the past four years working with large corporations (LinkedIn, VMware, Thermo Fisher, Draper), small startups (Earnest, GoShare), and a variety of student organizations.

When I'm not at my computer, I'm probably taking pictures, at the gym lifting, or traveling the world.

Incoming Software Engineer

Working on LinkedIn Sales Solutions in San Francisco, CA.

June 2017 - September 2017
Software Engineering Intern

I worked on the rearchitecture and redesign of the Sales Navigator product on the Pemberly technical stack under LinkedIn Sales Solutions. During my time on this project I developed patterns for and implemented a synchronized cache layer leveraging Ember Data, significantly reducing redundant API calls, and allowing for instantaneous optimistic client-side updates. I was also able to boost route transition and render performance 2-4x (worst case) and 10-20x (best case) and introduce lazy load and render occlusion culling to our application.

April 2017 - June 2017
Software Engineering Intern

I rearchitected key portions of the NSX Manager web application into Angular 4 using redux patterns and a centralized service layer. Additionally, I developed a coexistence platform to ease JS framework transitioning with selective app switching and capabilities for inter-app communication using RxJS, created various reusable Angular components, worked on a new workflows feature to enable eased guidance through the various complexities in the NSX platform, enabled rudimentary role based access controls of features using route guards, and developed a real time, isometric network topology diagramming tool with interactive and editable capabilities using Node.js and vis.js.

Software Engineering Intern

I developed a Feature Flag and A/B Testing Platform designed to aid in unified or partial rollouts of new features to certain audiences, and measure their success through a singular micro-service. The RESTful API was created using a hapi.js server overlaid on Node.js with a PostreSQL database, and a custom module to track A/B statistics via Optimizely; this was paired with an administrative front end written in React with Okta OAuth2 authentication for privileged tasks. Additionally, I worked with the team to develop other UI components for the various loan applications using Angular and Sass.

June 2015 - September 2015
Software Engineering Intern

During my internship at Thermo Fisher Scientific, I engaged in full stack web development, developing code at the database, back end, and front end levels. I developed a real time data gathering and aggregation application in ASP.NET, with an Oracle database, VB back end, and HTML/CSS/JS front end, to allow for management to track the overall progress/health of their respective departments in real time through a series of easy to read metric visualizations. I also created scripts to aid in workflow automation by pulling desired information from multiple different sources and formatting it into desired automated reports.

June 2014 - August 2014
Engineering Intern

During the summer of 2014, I worked as an Engineering Intern in Draper Laboratory's Inertial Instrument Test and Development group. As part of my internship, I developed algorithms and MATLAB scripts to aid in the collection and analysis of data from accelerometers and gyroscopes used in the Trident II Mark 6 Mod 1 guidance system program for the Navy. A particular accelerometer data-processing algorithm was implemented at a production facility that is managed by a Draper vendor.

President and Founder

Westwood Technology is an organization that I founded at the age of 14. Westwood Technology is a free program offered throughout Westwood, MA that focuses on the technological education of our community. This took form through both online and in person educational resources that members of our community are able to access through the website. On the website my organization created educational videos and text guides on how to navigate every day technical difficulties. In addition, this organization created volunteer opportunities for other students to develop teaching and technological skills as they helped others in our community deal with specific technology problems.
