Guo Wei joined Connected Freight as a fresh graduate from Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in June 2020.
Working for a product based SaaS company straight out of school has been both challenging and fulfilling. Guo Wei had to learn a cutting edge logistics platform - this includes reading tens of thousands of lines of code, absorbing the technical skills required to contribute to the platform's growth, while learning as well the logistics domain knowledge itself.
"I would say there is no shortcut and we can’t rush learning things. So [I took the] time to learn by proactively reading and asking." Undoubtedly, Guo Wei's demonstration of Connected Freight's core values such as Collaboration and Agility had helped him and the team to overcome the challenges which also led to his promotion earlier this year.
"The entire logistics team has been very supportive and helpful when I needed help. I would like to give a special shoutout to Richard, our Principal Engineer, for providing guidance and mentoring in my software engineering journey, which is really essential to anyone who has just started their career."
On his promotion, Guo Wei shares a four-word tip: “Be hungry to learn.”
