Software Engineer at Scribd
I am currently a Software Engineer at Scribd, specifically part of the Android team. I get to develop features for our Android mobile application and work with other Android engineers to solve different sets of problems. I recently graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in computer science and relocated to San Francisco.
During college, I interned as a software engineer at Salesforce and Clover Network in the bay area. My internships helped me learn what type of work I wanted to do in my field when I graduated. Now, as a software engineer in the industry, I want to continue learning about the different things I can do with my skill set.
