About Me

Hi there, I'm Jamsheed! 👋

I'm a recent graduate from the UC Berkeley Computer Science program, and I'm currently a Founding Engineer at Layerup (YC S22). I also do research at the Berkeley Netsys Lab.

In my spare time, I help other students start their own ventures at Hack+.

I'm also a hackathon enthusiast; I'm currently working on Pinnacle, the Olympics of Hackathons. In the past, I've led Los Altos Hacks and CodeDay Bay Area, inspiring high school students to pursue careers in STEM.

In the past, I've worked at Twitter, Apple, Stanford, Udacity, and Gauss Surgical, doing engineering, project management, and research.

I've also been practicing Taekwondo for over 15 years. As a 5th degree black belt, I referee tournaments around the world, coach the UC Berkeley collegiate team, and teach Physical Education courses at UC Berkeley for Taekwondo self-defense. I also occasionally teach classes at Tiger Martial Arts.

You can find out more about my specific positions and accomplishments on my LinkedIn or on my resume.


I love creating things that are useful or have an impact on people. Here are a handful of projects that I've worked on:

3NAME perpetually scans for available three-letter Minecraft usernames (considered "rare") using a complex algorithm that I designed. Over the last 5 years, I've grown the website to serve over 500,000 monthly requests, and it even has a fanbase of over 5,000 gamers on Discord.
Chrome Theme Studio is a tool that allows users to create their own custom browser theme for most Chromium-based browsers. It was featured as #3 Product of the Day on Product Hunt (link), and it's my most starred project on GitHub (link).
Reflect is web-based software for a "magic mirror" that I built from scratch. This software responds to voice commands, plays music, and displays the current news headlines, time, date, weather, and Bitcoin prices. Its YouTube demo has thousands of views and can be found here.
TigerScore is an online testing form system for martial arts academies. It handles payments, application submissions, parent notification, and much more. It has been in use by my martial arts academy, Tiger Martial Arts, since it was built around 5 years ago.
