Nishant Shukla
VP of Engineering
Nishant Shukla

As VP of Engineering, Nishant leads the engineering team to meet product goals. He oversees technical architecture and outlines quarterly roadmaps to align the engineering vision to business needs. Always on his mind are the words scalability, robustness, adaptability, and quality.

Previously, Nishant was VP of Engineering at dm.ai, where he helped grow the team from 2 to over 50 engineers.  He received his PhD in Computer Science from UCLA, where he also published a textbook titled Machine Learning with TensorFlow. Nishant graduated with his BS in Computer Science and a BA in Mathematics from the University of Virginia—where he was a founding member of the University's first hackathon. He also lectured a 1-credit course on Haskell, which led to him authoring a textbook titled Haskell Data Analysis Cookbook.

In his free time, Nishant rides horses, plays and makes video games, and sometimes raises chickens. He enjoys exploring new cities and indulging in local eateries. When no one is looking, he barks back at his dog.
