FINkit People Series: Hin Chua

2 Apr 2017

In this ongoing quickfire ‘behind the scenes’ series, we meet FINkit people from across the business, giving you a flavour of who we are and what we do.

Hin Chua is a Developer Evangelist at FINkit in our London office.

Hi Hin and thanks for taking the time to answer our 5 questions.

1. In a nutshell, what’s an average day for you?

First, I usually start by telling people that I’m kind of like engine oil. Thus, there’s no initial obvious need for me. However, things usually work more smoothly and with less breakdowns when I get involved. I really do appreciate the fact I don’t have an average kind of day. There’s always a lot of variety. This usually involves me talking to a bunch of different people. I help figure out what needs to be done today or for the next week. Consequently, this sometimes involves being wilfully pedantic! I ask a lot of simple, obvious questions. Half the challenge in technology is constantly overcoming challenges to clarity.

2. Best thing about FINkit?

We’re open minded to new technologies and ways of working. Our decision making process is transparent and logical. So we’re empowered to do the right thing and make the right decision.

3. What makes you come to work every day?

I can honestly say that I enjoy working with my peers at FINkit. Firstly, their individual and collective successes give me satisfaction. Secondly, I greatly value the empowerment and flexibility that working within FINkit provides. I get to decide what work I do on a daily basis. Where I can add the most value and what kind of role I’ll be playing. The sheer variety of different hats I’ve worn has greatly contributed to my enjoyment.

4. Why are FINkit People different to everyone else?

For me, it’s probably the empowerment that we all have to do the right thing. So often this doesn’t exist in other companies or is lost along the way. It’s very important to let subject matter experts be experts and not people who tow the corporate line.

5. What’s your go-to downtime activity?

I’m also a photographer and I’ve been internationally-exhibited. I travel to strange and esoteric post-industrial landscapes. Places I’ve visited recently include the West Texas oilfields and the world’s largest shipyard in South Korea. I’ve also visited the Suicide Forest of Japan and Gravesend.
