Senior Software Engineer, Uber
Nina was born in the former USSR country, Almaty Kazakstan. She comes from a family of musicians and medical doctors, so her entry into the tech industry is still a mystery to her family. Between music exams (as a daughter of musicians she had no choice to not have a musical education) Nina was participating in various math and physics contests. Her interest in math and physics led her to studying mathematics and mechanics at Saint-Petersburg State University, Russia. Upon landing a job as a Senior Software Engineer on Uber’s Trust & Safety team, Nina said goodbye to the Russian winters and hello to mostly-sunny San Francisco. She’s a fan of almost all outdoor activities (climbing, cycling, kayaking, backpacking, etc), and is a 3rd category mountaineer on the Russian mountaineering grade system!
