Good morning! My name is
Nathan Benavides-Luu.
I build things for the web.

I'm a first-year computer science student at Brown University, a frontend software engineering (STEP) intern at Google, and an entrepreneurial full-stack developer with a passion for building accessible and useful tools for education.

Projects

Experience

  • Cloud Platform STEP Intern

    Google

    May 2021 - Present

    I worked on the Frontend Storage Engineering team to design and develop user interfaces using Angular for Storage products in Google Cloud Platform. I implemented and delivered the Redis idle connections feature within the Cloud Memorystore UI by adding the “timeout” configuration option to the Redis instance “create”, “edit”, and “view details” pages.

  • Product Manager

    Full Stack at Brown

    Oct 2020 - Present

    I serve as a point of contact between the club and clients. I help manage full-stack engineering teams for various web and mobile projects, including Muutual and the Brown CS Advising System, by hosting weekly standups, delegating tasks to members, and scheduling one-on-ones to unblock team members.

  • Full Stack Web Developer

    Brown Entrepreneurship Program

    Oct 2020 - Present

    I develop various web and mobile tools and resources for the Brown Entrepreneurship Program and the Brown entrepreneurial community at large. My most recent project is Venture@Brown, an interactive guide that gives Brown and RISD a personalized list of entrepreneurial resources on College Hill.

  • Student Worker

    County of San Diego

    May 2019 - Nov 2020

    I helped optimize the paper and electronic document intake process to reduce postage costs, processing turn-around time, and errors in data entry. I also worked with child support participants in both English and Spanish, processed and updated confidential information in California child support database, maintained intranet resources, helped deploy Microsoft Teams, conducted routine computer troubleshooting tasks, and helped manage Microsoft 365 licenses.
