Jake Hong: leading development of our website, working with new frameworks, and growth as employee #1 of a startup

  • Definitely working with such brilliant people. They are all experts in their own field and it’s very fascinating to see how they work as a team. There are a lot to learn from them everyday, from how they manage to break through roadblocks to how they work so hard and diligently.
  • Building the whole website myself. This is my primary responsibility at Viralspace and I really enjoy what I am doing. Turning a design into a working website can be a long and tough process which requires a lot of endurance and persistence. However, seeing the website growing with more functionalities and more beautiful design makes me feel like I am raising a child. This is definitely a unique experience that I am getting at Viralspace.

What are you passionate about?

  • I have always been passionate about building things. When I was about 4 years old, I already had a drawer full of legos. In elementary school, I got into making plastic kit models such as tanks, submarines, gundams, etc. If my little brother hadn’t broken them, I would probably have a shelf about my height full of those. And now, I am passionate about building websites.
  • Outside of work, I love spending time with my friends, generally chatting about life while having food together. When I am not with my friends, I love to cook or play piano.
