My name is Yu-Lin Yang, and I'm an incoming Product Manager for Microsoft on the Azure Networking team and the former President of Transcend UW, the largest student run innovation competition in the United States. I stumbled into the intersection of engineering and entrepreneurship by accident, but I found that I love not only building products that drive change, but also empowering other like-minded students to innovate.
I spent the summer of 2019 interning at Roblox and the Fall Semester doing a co-op at Facebook. Last summer, I was a data science intern at Discover Financial Services. Two summers ago, I was a software engineering intern at MAGIX, which built VEGAS PRO, a multi-million-dollar video editing software. I built 4 features that are in the final version of the product which garnered a multitude of praise from our users.
At school, I was the President of Transcend UW in 2018-2019, a community that inspires entrepreneurship and innovation. I led a diverse team of 11 ambitious individuals to inspire the Madison student community to create businesses and innovative ideas that will change the world. In 2019, my team and I raised over $60,000 for our annual startup competition.
I also love photography and cinematography. As a freelancer, I've made trailers, hype videos, and project videos for school, friends, and real clients. As a hobby, I've made videogame cinematics as well.
What I'm Working On Now
As of Spring 2020, I'm working on Bleisure, an app which helps business people deal with loneliness while traveling for work by finding social activities with similar minded people. If this is something you'd be interested in, there's more to come soon! Linkedin is the best way of reaching me!
