Nguyen Ngoc Hoang（グエンゴック・ホアン）
I majored IT engineer, the main study was a Database Administrator
It was when I was a high school student. My parents told me that I can choose any path that I want. So, I chose IT field because I loved it. Since I was a child, I loved to be creative and I felt I am good at thinking logically.
I also love coding. So, I stared to learn programming computer. I was a high school student when I got my first PC. I learned how to use it and I started to explore the technical world and learned a lot of random small details.
My brother always helped me when I faced trouble. He used to give me solutions. So, basically, he is the one who developed my interest in computer. He was my first teacher.
When I graduated from the University, I joined oRo Vietnam that is run by Mr. Furusawa’s friend.
At that time, Mr. Furusawa wanted to make new SEO tools and he needed engineer who can help it base on his idea. So, Mr. Chau and I joined this project. This is the first step for me to build the MIERUCA service. And here I am. I am still working for Faber Company.
I would like to thank to Mr. Furusawa and Mr. Soejima for giving me this big opportunity to work in this good environment. Faber Company always work for the best to provide the excellent service to the clients. Everyone takes care of each other and shares their knowledge. When I first came to Japan, I was worried about a bit about communication because of my poor Japanese speaking skills. But everyone uses English as much as they can. That made me relived and gave me confident when making a connection.
At first, I was the main engineer for making a function of MIERUCA tool, such as keyword functions like Word Related and Suggest Keyword and so on…
And recently, MIERUCA team is having more engineers, so I become a reviewer of our source code.
I want to make MIERUCA to be more stable and improved. I hope this product will be one of the top SEO tool in Japan and also will be popular all over the world.
I think the great point is our great teamwork. Everybody can do anything and try to do it with all their best. If you face trouble, team would fight for you and help you.
Faber company recently gave me a chance to meet people who have experience in management task and security, as well as the coding skill. I think meeting new people helped building my skills and creative thinking more. They gave me solution and advised me when I was facing difficulty. Their knowledge is very practical and useful especially on the real cases like I face every day at work. This experience strengthened my communication skills and allowed me to learn valuable mediation techniques to resolve conflict. I admire and respect them so much.
I changed how I think about keep making MIERUCA more secure and better for client. And you know, my team always got my back and help me with all their power. I feel so blessed about it.
Faber company always support us. For example, when we want to study and improve our skill, they let us invite experienced person, make a library, or let us take some courses and examination like FE/AP…
Regarding work-private life balance, I had a little trouble at the beginning. Because we didn`t have enough resources in our team. But now, I can make a balance of it. Within my team, we share tasks, have a drink (or more) and sometimes we go out for event or go to climb a mountain. I feel like have a second family in Japan.
My hobby is traveling and taking photos. When I have free time, I usually make plans, such as sightseeing or taking a tour if I get all day. I think I would be able to know Japanese people and culture more every time I travel. Sometimes the team get together to have a drink or go to somewhere like an event, climbing mountain…
I enjoy living in Japan. Japanese people are so kind, and their social life is so modern. Advanced technology can be seen everywhere, and it always makes me surprise. In addition to that, I have friends and great colleagues. We share the fun and happiness together.
As for workwise, I need to improve all my skills including coding, management and server structure. In future, I would like to focus on the AWS service and want to be an AWS structure adviser. Also, I want to build a great team to make MIERUCA as top SEO tool.
For my private time, I want to be happier and do more traveling. Also, I want to make a family with my wife and give all the best to her/him.
I want to work with people who take the initiative, ownership. Also have responsibility and have a teamwork attitude.
What I would like to say to the new member is… “Together, we are strong”.
