Q&A with Vincent Tee
As a Software Developer, what key skill or experience did you lack when you started that has caused you the most problems?
Lack of experience meant that I had never handled a project of a big/huge scale prior to graduation. Having to get to grips with thousands of lines of codes across libraries and engines proved to be daunting at first. As I got along, under good mentorship by experienced seniors, I managed to learn to break down solutions and handle them systematically and patiently, eventually becoming adept and proficient at my job.
Are you looking for fresh grads or experienced staff for tech roles?
In PlayPal, we do not differentiate between fresh grads or experienced staff for tech roles. However, experience does count!
A fresh grad or even an undergrad can have extensive experience in the mobile platform due to their own passion and interest. Therefore, in our job ads, we do not include having a degree as a requirement.
Ultimately we seek passionate developers who strive to bring their skills, as well as our product to the top-most level. All while having fun. :)
What is the tech stack used at PlayPal?
PlayPal is a native mobile app currently available on iOS and Android platforms.
On the front-end, both uses native iOS(objective-c) and Android(Java) code as the base, structured in MVC architectural pattern.
On the backend, PHP/mySQL is chosen for familiarity, and because its many open source libraries and documentation make for fast deployment.
We deploy on Amazon AWS - app servers on EC2, database on RDS, and storage on S3.
What do interns gain out of working at Playpal?
No matter what role you're joining as, you will immediately feel yourself as an important part of our fast-growing, young and energetic start-up. There is tremendous satisfaction to be gained from knowing that you can turn your passion into work which will bring enormous value to the football community and become the cornerstones of our subsequent success. Not to mention, there might even be chances for you to interact with the who's who of football! :)
