Jesse Zhang
I'm Jesse -- welcome to my site ๐Ÿ™‚. This is a home for cool tech I'm experimenting with, and a place to track my side projects.

I founded Lowkey, a gaming video app backed by Andreessen Horowitz and Y Combinator before being acquired by Niantic!

Nowadays, I work on the Social team at Niantic. I'm also involved in some funds via Sequoia Scouts and Neo.

My background is in engineering (primarily web and ML) and math. Previously, I studied Computer Science at Harvard, where I also interned at places such as Citadel, Google, HRT, Intel, Kensho, and EDO.

In my free time, I really like playing basketball, tennis, board games, and certain video games (hit Grandmaster in Teamfight Tactics -- aiming for Challenger :D). I also wrote a problem on the 2021 AMC 10.

Recently, I've started angel investing (check out SPG, Dorsal, Motion, Verse Medical, and more). You can find me on LinkedIn or via email.
