Ian Loke's Resume

Email contact: ianlokejj@gmail.com

At heart I am a deeply technical and result-oriented person. I've worked with sophisticated and demanding enterprise customers and have an understanding of how to manage their expectations and inspire confidence.

Keen to seek new challenges, I am always looking at how to expand my knowledge and capability, and am happy to share this knowledge whenever possible. Never accepting the status quo, I am driven to investigate new and innovative solutions to existing problems using both new and existing technologies.

I prefer small companies/startups which call for using the best people available anywhere in the world, transparency, and strong tools for collaboration and communication.
