  • As a semi-senior engineer in an international startup company, I experienced the atmosphere of being energetic, spontaneous, and initiative. I'm responsible for the progress of our timezone, being well-communicating and easy-going. We together have worked on plenty of problems from scratch, brainstorming the proposal, co-work with the expert and customers from different fields, utilizing the new knowledge and tools that we've just learned, and coming out with clever, comprehensive, and logical solutions, but easy to be understood.
  • To summarize how I work, I'm well-known for my creativity to solve problems, as well as my persistence to conduct the best design with the correct philosophy. I care about efficiency a lot, always seeking the most ingenious way, but at the same time thinking deeply, trying to find the balance between the best and the quickest. Also, I'm always enthusiastic to try new thing, no matter for my job, my side project, or my life. I always catch up fast, but on the other hand, having good control and management of everything that I've done.
