Yushi Jing ( Kevin Jing )Joining Google Research as an intern in 2004, then a full-time SWE in 2006, I worked with on building visual-search systems and interfaces. In 2012-3, one of my intern successfully started Orbeus (acquired by Amazon), while another co-founded VisualGraph with me (acquired by Pinterest). After the acquisition, we built visual-discovery team and launched Flashlight and Related Pins 2.0 with 15 engineers, generating +40% of the site engagement share. Founding team (photo) members went on to manage Related Pins team, Lens team, ML-infra team, and Related-ads team; I returned to Google to work on Product-listing-ads & Cloud Retail related projects.
