Meet Gemeng Qin
A little bit about me...
I’m a programmer, a photographer and a lifelong learner. I love the continuous journey of learning new things which is one of the reasons why I became a developer.
I’m a developer consultant at ThoughtWorks. As part of the team, I work together with our clients to come up with the right solutions to their problems by designing and delivering software.
I’ve always wanted to work in a company where I can do what I love, learn new things and at the same time advocate for positive social change.
I had heard that ThoughtWorks was an awesome place to work even before joining. At ThoughtWorks we get to work on a variety of unique projects, experiment interesting new technologies and continuously improve ourselves. Another reason is that the ThoughtWorks culture values transparency and honesty and the belief in social and economic justice at it’s very core.
What’s your biggest challenge working at ThoughtWorks?
So far, the biggest challenge I’ve faced has been trying to influence clients. At ThoughtWorks, I’m a programmer as well as a consultant which requires me to work together with clients and deliver good software solutions. I find it both interesting and challenging to be able to work and communicate effectively with our clients to come up with better solutions together.
What do you like most about working at ThoughtWorks?
I really enjoy having the opportunity to work on a large variety of projects with amazing ThoughtWorkers and continuously learn about new technologies in unique projects. Most importantly, the people who work in ThoughtWorks are very smart and super nice which allows me to constantly grow and improve myself (not only in coding but in many other ways)
Tell us something that not many people know about you
Besides coding, I also love photography. I used to be a freelance photographer and I shoot candid photos of people, landscapes, and streets. I believe that both coding and photography involve creativity and design and it’s enjoyable to find art in coding and logic in photography.
