Junior Software Engineer, Zatil tells us about cycling and revisiting a country as well as her hopes for fintech being more eco-friendly and inclusive.
How did you come to join the mmob?
A recruiter approached me with the job opportunity when I was about to resign from my previous company. As an individual who loves to explore and learn new things, embedded finance really piqued my curiosity and eventually, I decided to see for myself how embedded finance works.
What do you find most exciting about working at mmob?
The teamwork and working environment where everyone helps each other out to ensure the projects are completed as planned. I also enjoy learning new things from the CTO and senior developers.
What are you working towards at the moment?
For now, I am working on creating smart entry for marketplace that aims to enhance the existing journey in the platform.
What does your job role entail?
Being a junior software engineer, I am responsible for developing front-end using ReactJs, back-end using Python and providing support to the tech team.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
As I can usually think of tons of activities to do all the time, I do not have a specific hobby. However, I will always make time to cycle around Klang Valley in Malaysia every weekend as there are many different cycle routes to be explored. When I am not cycling, you will find me playing guitar/ukulele or watching anime, films and documentaries. Reading manga and playing video games are amongst the activities I enjoy doing too.
What do you think the future of fintech looks like?
The future is quite hard to predict because technology changes very quickly. My hopes for fintech is it will become more eco-friendly and serve to bridge the gap between the underprivileged and privileged communities especially when it comes to access to financial services, health care and education.
What are three words your family or friends use to describe you?
A ‘logical independent soloist’
Being a travel enthusiast, which country would you like to revisit and why?
Turkey. I visited Istanbul during a transit to Saudi Arabia but haven’t yet had the chance to explore other places in that country. The culture, food, sceneries, and history are the compelling reasons I would like to return to Turkey again.
What is the best piece of advice you have received?
“You can’t go back and make a new start, but you can start right now and make a brand-new ending” – James R.Sherman
