My name is Eli Hickox. I'm a software engineer based in The San Francisco Bay Area. I spent three years studying Mathematics and Computer Science at The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, but then I dropped out to work on the Systems team at RelateIQ, a Salesforce company.
Since then, RelateIQ has become SalesforceIQ, and SalesforceIQ has been rebranded as Einstein. I spent three years there working as a back-end engineer on all parts of the system from the Salesforce integration for Salesforce Inbox to Automated Activity Capture for Salescloud. Some examples of projects I have brought to life are: geolocation for read receipts, the mobile news feed, and custom object support for Salesforce Inbox.
After that, I spent year as a back-end engineer at Split Software, working on things such as workspaces and the event ingestion pipeline. I was instrumental in developing the Alerting and Monitoring feature.
Today, I'm a full-stack engineer at Lyric Hospitality, helping to build the future of short-term rentals.
This is my personal website which showcases my portfolio of personal projects and provides links to my profiles on various websites. To see some of my projects, click on PROJECTS. Note that this is an incomplete list. The pace of software development is rapid and I don't always have time to update my website. To see a complete collection of my projects, check out my GitHub.
Apart from software, I'm an avid golfer. I also enjoy photography, traveling, and writing in my free time.
