Hi, I'm Shelby

About me

I'm a software engineer is on the Search Infrastructure team at Twitter.


Whether it is Android development, server-side development, or functional programming, I always love to be learning and improving my skills as an engineer. Prior to Twitter, I was a Senior Software Engineer at Intuit who worked on developing UI components and tooling for native mobile applications. At Intuit, I also spent time working on back-end services in Kotlin and Java in the Developer Productivity Organization, leading cross-division engineering efforts to allow seamless development and testing of products, such as TurboTax, Mint, and QuickBooks.

Recently I was a guest on the Lambda Show Podcast and the Belfast Kotlin User Group talking about how you can get started with Functional Programming! Listen here🎤 and here!

How To Get Your Ideas Heard—Even When You’re Entry-Level

"In just a month, via one-on-one trainings, webinars, white papers and seminars, Shelby and Katie introduced and trained the Intuit engineering brand on Kotlin, and are now speaking at leading engineering conferences on how others can do the same. I interviewed the inspiring ambitious duo for their tips on driving company change from an entry-level role."


How two junior Intuit engineers helped their team adopt Kotlin within a month

"As two relatively junior developers at financial software provider Intuit, Shelby and Katie didn’t only have to take on the challenge of building out training programs and providing resources to thousands of developers across Intuit, they also had to negotiate internal hierarchies and politics that can prove resistant to change."

How to Make an Impact in a Male-Dominated Industry, from Women Who’ve Done It

"Women make up less than 30% of the tech’s incredibly important for women technologists to have the freedom (and cultural support) to learn, experiment, bring new ideas, and influence decisions within and beyond their teams. Software Engineers Katie Levy and Shelby Cohen seem to have found the secret sauce."
