Jacob Evan Shreve

Systems Programmer & Aspiring Cryptography Engineer

Jacob's Face

Hey there! My name's Jacob. I live in Ypsilanti, MI, and I'm a systems programmer and computer science student. I'm currently looking for work starting after I graduate in August 2020.

If you'd like to get in touch, you can email me (jacob [at] shreve.io) or tweet me (@_shreve). You can easily encrypt your message here if you're into that sort of thing.

Things I'm working on

  • B.S.E. in Computer Science from UMich

    In Fall 2016, I started at the University of Michigan's school of engineering. By the time I finish, I'll have taken courses in algorithms, cryptography, computer security, operating systems, networks, and more.

  • Refraction Networking

    Refraction Networking is a method for circumventing censorship which integrates directly into the network, rather than existing as individual endpoints, making it much harder to detect and block. I'm currently working on the project as a research assistant with the goal of adding TLS 1.3 support.

  • Open Source Software

    When I write software, I like to write it in a way that I can share it with the whole world. On my GitHub I've shared code for remote-controlling Roku TVs, a ready-to-deploy Stripe checkout server, a split encryption tool, and more.

This song goes out to anybody here that believes that maybe, just maybe, we were all born with the moral obligation to leave this world a better place than the world that we've found.
