Shiru is pleased to announce the appointment of Emily Lam to the role of Senior Accountant.

Shiru’s mission is to feed people sustainably by leveraging machine learning and precision biology to identify and create ideal food proteins. As Shiru goes through rapid growth, we are investing heavily, modeling high growth strategies, and preparing for revenue. Therefore, it is time to beef up our finance capability to keep us on the straight and narrow. Emily brings the strategic modeling skills and fiscal discipline needed to take us to the next level.

Emily graduated from San Francisco State University with a BS in Finance. Emily started her career as a billing analyst at a medical provider and since then has taken on different roles in the functional accounting and finance areas at multiple tech startups, including BitTorrent and Gigster.

“Having lived in different parts of the world, I have had unique opportunities to learn about different cultures, lifestyles and diets. Each place has taught me the importance of leading a healthy life, and I’ve learned it all starts with healthy food choices. Therefore, I am very thrilled to have the opportunity to join Shiru, whose mission is to use computational biology to create plant based proteins. I look forward to working with the rest of the team and using my experience to build and strengthen the finance team.”

Outside of all of those spreadsheets and financial reports, you can find Emily in nature capturing countless photographs, in the kitchen cooking new recipes, or bonding with her two little toddlers.
