Hoang (Eric)

Senior Software Engineer, Vietnam

I am a coder, a blogger, a ShopBacker. I am Codeaholicguy.

I first started programming back in high school where I created an RPG game from scratch with Ruby and posted it on a game forum. Surprisingly, there were many users who said it was really fun. From then on, I really fell in love with programming and decided that I would spend my time learning to be a better coder to build amazing softwares loved by users.

I then went on to study Software Engineering in FPT University, where my passion for coding grew deeper and deeper. I would spend most of my time just researching and doing the best I can to learn as much as I can. In the last year of my university, I decided to spend my time after school to work for a large software company on one of their projects. My most interesting experience was when I built a team of 4 engineers for a project at my previous company. It gave me the experience of being able to mentor and develop a team of engineers, and building a good engineering culture.

I spend most of my free time on my IT blog here: https://codeaholicguy.com/ and giving talks at tech events to share my working experience and knowledge with Vietnamese developers. I love to learn new technologies, and to be able to share them with people around me.

When I was first introduced to ShopBack in 2017, I was amazed by the growth of the business and the uniqueness of our product, as the cashback scene in Southeast Asia was relatively unheard of at that time. However, I was just beginning to build my team in my previous company and could not leave those responsibilities at that time. A year later, however, I came across a job posting of Senior Software Engineer at ShopBack, and I decided then, to take up this opportunity to grow together with the team.

What I really loved about ShopBack is the #KICKON culture, where my ideas get heard and I am able to work on a product that has direct impact on the productivity of the whole company, and later on, millions of users across many different countries. I envision to be able to build a strong engineering culture here, just like Netflix, and I’m confident that I will be able to do so!
