Hey there!

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

Drop me a line [email protected]


I'm a 27 year old Staff Software Engineer working on the Pages team under LinkedIn and a Computer Science graduate from the University of California, San Diego. I have a love for all aspects of technology and applied problem solving and currently work in Mountain View, CA.

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 opportunity to hone my skills while working at large corporations (LinkedIn, VMware, Thermo Fisher, Draper) and startups (Earnest).

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

Staff Software Engineer

Working on the Pages team in Mountain View, CA.

June 2017 - September 2017
Software Engineering Intern

I worked within LinkedIn Sales Solutions on the rearchitecture and redesign of the Sales Navigator product using the Pemberly technical stack. During my time on this project I developed patterns for 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 by 2-4x (worst case) and 10-20x (best case) and introduce viewport based lazy load and render occlusion culling to our web application.

Software Engineering Intern

I rearchitected key portions of the NSX Manager web application in Angular 2+ using redux patterns with a centralized service layer. Additionally as a part of my work I developed the following: a coexistence platform to ease JS framework transitioning (moving from ExtJS to Angular 2+) with selective app switching and capabilities for inter-app communication using RxJS, various reusable Angular components, a new workflows feature to enable eased guidance through the various complexities in the NSX platform, role based access controls of features using route guards, and 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 with the ability to measure their success through a singular micro-service. The RESTful API was created using a hapi.js server layer, 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 authentication for privileged tasks. Additionally, I worked to develop various other UI components for the loan applications using Angular 1.x.

Web Developer

I worked on creating, revising, and maintaining webpages featured on the Rady School of Management website using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, XSLT, and Velocity. Additionally I contributed to full redesign of the Rady website using Bootstrap and lead the efforts for increasing site speed performance following the changes (compressing static assets, decreasing JS dependencies, etc.).

June 2015 - September 2015
Software Engineering Intern

I developed an internal tool to gather and aggregate data in real time in ASP.NET, with an Oracle database, Visual Basic back end, and an HTML/CSS/JavaScript frontend. This tool to allowed for teams to track their overall progress while taking on tasks 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 reports to be used by project managers.

Engineering Intern

I worked as an Engineering Intern in Draper Laboratory's Inertial Instrument Test and Development group. 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. My work on a new accelerometer data-processing algorithm was implemented at a production facility that is managed by a Draper vendor while other work was used onsite.
