Full-stack Cloud-enabled Software Engineer

Hi, I am a final year Computer Science undergraduate passionate about solving Meaningful Problems. I am currently looking for full-time opportunities as a Software Engineer or Cloud Engineer, starting from July 2021.

I was a Full-stack Software Engineer Intern at Open Government Products previously. I am also a Google Certified Associate Cloud Engineer and AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner.

I believe soft skills are just as important as technical competency. As a Tutor for CS3103: Computer Networks Practice, I conduct weekly labs for 16 students independently. As the Deputy Head of Tech at Google Developer Student Club NUS, I co-organised and emceed for Hack For Good 2020.

I am also an IMDA scholar (bond-free) who has received numerous awards. I received the Colours Award for my contributions to the school sports scene as the President of the NUS Skating Club.

You can contact me at evan.it.sg@gmail.com or through Linkedin.
