Nikhil Jain

Research & Development

Nikhil grew up in India and moved to the US to pursue a PhD at UPenn after finishing is undergrad in Computer Science from IIT Bombay. But a little over a year into his PhD, Google came on campus and made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. 🙂 That brought him to California where we was a Software Engineer and Tech Lead at Google for about 8 years. During this time he worked on large scale software systems and led projects in areas like AdWords and DoubleClick. He eventually left Google to make more time for his meditation practice and volunteer work.

Nikhil is interested in happy and healthy living and likes to keep a regular practice of Vipassana meditation. Nikhil also likes Yoga, with Shavasana being his favorite asana.
