Key Accomplishments

Coffee Meets Bagel is clearly my most relevant experience. I was the first person to join after the 3 (non-technical) cofounders, and I built the site/app from about 15k users (built with contractors) to the millions of users we have today. I scaled the team from just myself to a team of 15 engineers. A particularly gratifying accomplishment was keeping our servers stable while our company was featured on Shark Tank.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

You run the business - marketing, finance, user engagement, etc - and I'll build the product and the Engineering team. I like to work closely with the CEO, especially on defining the product - I like for my ideas to be heard and incorporated into the product.

As an Advisor

I've only advised one company but I'm happy to offer my technical experience for a company and strong team that excites me. Let me know how I can help.

Vouch for them.

Matthew Wu
We worked together  •  Director of Engineering, Coffee Meets Bagel. Previously Lead Software Engineer, Gracenote.
Adam definitely has entrepreneur spirit, plus other characters like leadership, technical skills as well as product visions
Melisa Lin
We worked together  •  Founder & CEO, Nommery and Founder, Foodies. UC Berkeley '09
Adam is an amazingly insightful and helpful startup advisor. He's gone far above and beyond our expectations as Nommery's main tech mentor, ... always super responsive to any queries and ready to provide feedback as one of the power users of our product. At our first advisory meeting, Adam quickly grasped our technical stack and challenges. He has lent his experience building and scaling Coffee Meets Bagel internationally to Nommery's growth and expansion. Our social dining network wouldn't be nearly as great without his foresight and constant support. Any startup would be lucky to have Adam Berlinksy-Schine on their advisory board.
Mike Deerkoski
They're my advisor  •  VP Engineering, depict Inc. and Technical Advisor, Coffee Meets Bagel.
Adam has been the CTO of Coffee Meets Bagel, and their first full-time employee. He hired the team, scaled the product, moved the product f ... rom being a facebook app, to a very popular iOS and Android dating app, and moving the team forward to closing their A-round funding. He's extremely intelligent, has a very strong CS background from Cornell, Amazon, and Yelp, and is continually self-driven to building amazing product experiences to millions of customers. A big thumbs up with all of my work with Adam!
Flora Fiorillo
They're my friends  •  People & Talent Operations, Beepi. Previously People Operations (HR) Business Partner, Cisco Meraki.
He is technically sound and dedicated to his work.

SooMin Lee
They're my friends  •  Previously Commercial MBA Intern, Genentech. Previously Market Planning Intern, BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc.. Northwestern grad.
His track record at Coffee Meets Bagel, his ability to manage engineers in a startup environment, his willingness to put in the hours and ju ... mp in whenever necessary make Adam a great entrepreneur.
Dan Loewenherz
We worked together  •  President, Lionheart Software. Previously Founder & Partner, Elm City Labs. Yale grad.
Adam is an incredibly quick learner. I onboarded him to a huge codebase and he was contributing major features and deploying to production w ... ithin just a few days. He's an excellent communicator, sharp, and has a great attitude.


Soo Kang
They're my current cofounder  •  Co-Founder/Creative, Coffee Meets Bagel. Previously Senior Graphic Designer, Coty.
Adam has a great passion for what he does. He always brings great ideas for the product and the business and deeply cares about customers' e ... xperience. He is diligent and responsible for his work. Whatever needs to get done, he does it. As a full stack developer, he stepped up to learn and develop our first native iOS app. He joined CMB as CTO - one person engineer and grow his team to 10+ engineers. He has shown great leadership and ability to work in cross-functional teams. Without his contribution, we couldn't be where we are now.
