@Samsung Electronics

After my graduate study, I decided to train myself through hands-on experiences of building commercial products and services. So I joined Samsung Electronics in 2010, as a software engineer at R&D team of Telecommunication Systems Division. In this company, I have worked on impactful projects and social activities, from which I could learn a lot and polish my vision for future career.

In the project, I worked on Android's core application frameworks including Window Manager, Activity Manager, UI Framework. Also I was responsible for the Android CTS and Google approval. I've navigated through many of the Android's system components for full compatibility check, and could understand a lot about the software architecture.

TEDxSamsung is a group of people motivated to share ideas and dive into action to change the world. I joined TEDxSamsung in Mar 2011 as a conference organizer. In the second conference held in Aug 2011, I gave a 18 minute talk, about a project I was working on - eyeCan. It was a great venue to share my aspirations and experiences, and after the talk, my project earned a big publicity through communities in Samsung, finally getting appointed as the first project team at Samsung Electronics' 'Creativity Lab (CLAB)'.

Creativity Lab (CLAB)

Creativity Lab (CLAB) is a newly created laboratory in Samsung Electronics. The lab is a privilege for employees who have innovative idea and creative mind, where they can work as a full-time task force (T/F) for a project with their own directions.

My project, eyeCan, significantly contributed to the initial setup of CLAB, building a new team entirely on my own. Not just an job opportunity, CLAB also was an attempt to change the culture of Samsung. It was amazing to see how a bottom-up, and agile approach we have taken lead our project to big success.
