Benny is a full stack software engineer at New Ventures, PwC Hong Kong, who is responsible for developing and maintaining large and scalable software, coordinating with different teams for helping colleagues to fit in the Scrum process within the software life cycle, communicating with clients for business, sales and specification discussions and helping the team promoting the products to potential clients at external events.
As one of the few early software engineers joining the team, Benny works in the agile style and creates standards to help shape the culture of New Ventures. Within the 2 years, Benny and his colleagues have helped the team to recruit more new members, brought in the first few clients for the products and started more projects to further accelerate sales growth.
Before joining PwC Hong Kong, Benny has worked at Next Digital (previously Next Media), one of the largest media companies in Hong Kong. Not only has Benny helped the team to build client facing products and created various interactive installations at external events, Benny has also developed easy-to-use internal software to greatly reduce effort and manual errors in advertisement bookings. Benny has aided Next Media to undergo digital transformation and shared his technical knowledge with his colleagues to help them understand the progress. The result of digital transformation was a phenomenal success and the rivals of the newspaper industry have also followed the steps of Next Digital for their digitalisation.
