Hi, I’m Jacob
I’m a Computer Science student at UC Davis (‘19).
Lover of pure functions.
Director of hackathons.
Cal Hacks 3.0 & 4.0 | Cal Hacks is the largest collegiate hackathon in the world, with over 2,000 attendees! Directing Cal Hacks is an amazing challenge that in involves feeding and transporting hundreds of hackers over the 36 hour event. At Cal Hacks I’ve directed the volunteer, mentor, and event logistics for 3.0 & 4.0.
Hack Davis 3.0 | Unlike other hackathons, Hack Davis is a hackathon for social good! We’ve grown from a humble 100 hackers to over 700 expected for 2018! Working with non-profits and other organizations to create a difference in society makes Hack Davis one of the most enjoyable hackathons for many students. Look for Hack Davis in January 2018!

Résumé - as of late 2017
Braintree | At Braintree I got to work on improving the merchant onboarding process into the APAC region. That meant working full-stack with micro services written in Ruby and Clojure in production. You can see the final version over here.
Tulip | Working at Tulip meant being a jack of all trades. Creating a real-time app platform for the manufacturing floor meant solving some capital H ‘Hard Problems’. Just to list a few:
- Improving chart rendering by 300% by sidesolving client-side memory leaks in D3.js
- Building an physical assembly line and shipping it to Germany
- Refactoring database collections for time series real-time chart updating
- Making an automated coffee pour-over system using LEAN Manufacturing Principles
- Solving race conditions in real-time analytics computations
It was a lot of fun to say the least :)
