  • “Continuous Learning is how you increase your limits”: Eric, Product Developer

    November 18, 2019 by

    Imagine a self-confessed “otaku” who was one of the finalists for best-dressed male during our 2018 Villain-themed Dinner and Dance, who enjoys fine dining experiences and is really good at solving problems by writing code.

Over the last 3 months, we had the chance to get to know her IRL (“in real life”), as Katrina, our Product Developer colleague from Taiwan was working out of our Singapore office, on an exchange program from the Taichung office!

    December 27, 2018 by

Everyone has the option to choose the task they want to work on due to no job assignment from supervisor. Team members would not be lazy and strive to get things done instead. In the end, the final outcome of the work is shared by the team.
