Shriya Nevatia


I'm a Product Manager at GLIDR owning our product integrations and new user onboarding. Previously, I was a UX Engineer working on User Research, Wireframes, and Front-End Engineering with React. GLIDR software helps you validate that you're going to market with products and business models that drive real value. We help you build better products by running experiments and validating your assumptions.

I founded an organization for young women who wanted to start startups called The Violet Society in 2013, which I re-launched in Spring 2018 as a cohort-based program. Our first 12-week cohort finished in August 2018 and we're running Violet Hacks on Nov 3-4, 2018.

I was previously a software engineer at Course Report in San Francisco and before that was a software engineer at Tradecraft. I was a student at Rithm School in 2017. In 2016-2017, I was a Data Analyst at Reforge, a Growth program for experienced professionals. From 2015-2016, I was Product Manager & UX Design Lead at Assembled (fka TenXList), a professional social network for STEM students. I am passionate about the future of education, personal development and building self-awareness, unlocking human potential, creative confidence, artificial intelligence, and learning.

I was co-director of Spectra, an all-women's hackathon, in 2016. I completed a B.S. in Computer Science at Tufts University in 2015, General Assembly's UX Design Course in 2013, Project Breaker's Design Thinking program in 2012, and Breakthrough Collaborative's Summer Teaching Residency in 2011.

I am a trained Bharatnatyam, Bollywood, Ballet, Jazz, and Contemporary dancer & choreographer and have been dancing for 20 years. In college, I was co-captain of Tufts Tamasha, an all-female competitive Bollywood-fusion dance team, and a member for 3 years before that. I'm a certified BollyX fitness instructor & currently dance with Nachle SF. In my spare time, I also enjoy drawing, painting, and reading.
