In 2017, after 3 years of amazing journey in Hiiir, I was ready to step out of my comfort zone. I entered Far East Tone Telecommunications, the 3rd largest telecom company in Taiwan, and started the challenging tasks of making an online video service, friDay Video, in the OTT market.
Introducing the product, friDay Video
In 2015, I decided to take the job from Hiiir Inc. (renamed as YSDT Co., Ltd., after reorganization in 2017), a professional and enthusiastic tech company in Taiwan. At Hiiir, I have experienced several times of transformation to assist the fast growing company.
UIUX Designer–friDay Shopping/ friDay ShoppingPlus
In 2014, I joined 1009 Design, and started my job as a freelance worker. It was an unique working experience. My partners and I are separated into 3 difference places in the world. 2 are in the USA, one designer is in Taichung, Taiwan, and I am located in Taipei, Taiwan. We gathered very few times and we used Skype for meeting all the time.
In 2011, I entered AboveNet, which offers 9×9.tv. During the times in 9×9, I had a chance to manage a contest for online video curators across universities, and this contest had drawn a lot of attention from professional media workers in Taiwan.
Project Manager – Industry-University Cooperation Project
For the past 6~7 years of working experience, I have accumulated several interesting works. The process of making products is always full of fun and inspirations.
friDay Shopping was just no big difference from the common Ecommerce service in the world. My job was to help enhance the user interface. There are a lot of compromises when it comes to being designers for an e-commerce service because the competition is especially fierce. Sometimes we can only ask for having a feature first and talking about the user experience, e.g. look and feel, later.
This is so far the most creative service I have ever done. The “customized price" is really appealing. friDay ShoppingPlus embraces an innovative business model of E-commerce. “Buy more, save more." has come to live! The price of products will drop if you add more stocks into your cart!
Alley is the app that help food lovers discover the restaurants that hid in the alleys in Taiwan. It connects users with the restaurants in Taiwan. Users are able to use nearly half price to try out a meal. In this project, I’m in charge of making AP/AR modules to help the store and the accounts clarify the bills and sales.
