I chose TAIGER, because here, I found a playground

Ng Ping,
Technical Lead

Search Team, Engineering Operations | Joined 2019

“At TAIGER, I’m responsible for the search product roadmap and to support delivery of various projects. I also have to ensure that the team is highly functional and its needs are met. With my role as a technical lead, I ensure that technical difficulties are meted out, and work processes are set and followed.

 

I appreciate the autonomy that comes with my position. TAIGER’s working environment also embraces change and initiative. What that does is encourage me to take the lead, and blaze my own path.”
