Hi, I'm Sebastian

The job you will be working on in the future, don't even exist yet.

This is what Farnam Jahanian, the president of Carnegie Mellon, said during our orientation in 2018. And I truly believe it.

I don't know what career I will have in the future, but I do know that the future requires interdisciplinary skills. The only thing I can do now is to prepare myself for anything. To let myself stand in the intersection of business, technology, and creativity.

As a product manager, I have led multiple teams from ideation to delivery. From VR video games to web applications, I enjoy working with people, maintaining production schedules with tools like Kanban and JIRA, conducting user interviews, and defining features that fit our user stories.

As a business analyst, I have done market and competitor research studies for Tencent. I interned at ByteDance US as a business developer, conducting market and company strategy research studies while evaluating studios and games for potential investment/licensing deals.

As a software engineer, I developed full-stack websites with Ruby on Rails, back-end database with SQL and Mongo, and front-end web design like this site you are seeing now. I also helped developed 3 mobile games, 3 PC games, and 2 virtual reality games in the last two years. And I'm currently working on iOS application development and working as a VR research assistant at CMU's Cognitive Development Lab.

As a data scientist, I visualized first-party user data from Tencent Games during my internship to provide insights about customer behaviors. I understand R, Python, and have written machine learning algorithms from scratch.

I'm graduating a semester early in December 2021, and I'm looking for an internship for summer 2021.

Sadly, this is a website. I cannot know who you are or what your story is. But please, feel free to reach out to me. I would love to learn more about you and I am always available to chat.

Other fun stuff I've done:

  • I have an on-campus job at the Alumni Association and led CMU's official social media initiative in China, a WeChat public account called "CMUNetwork";
  • I'm spearheading a non-profit investment fund to support student startups at CMU's Undergraduate Entrepreneurship Association;
  • I held charity campaigns and fundraisers to keep animals out of circuses, received a letter of appreciation from PETA;
  • I led the organization of a 5-day entrepreneurship summer camp for 100+ high school students twice;
  • I co-founded a mobile app Transease and won the World Top 50 in Microsoft Imagine Cup;
  • I led the design of a space settlement orbiting Mercury for NASA and won the first prize in China;
  • I was a presenter at both TEDxYouth@YundangLake and TEDxYouth@HuiZhangRd.
