We use TraceTogether on a day-to-day basis, but have you wondered how the development process was like? Generalist vs Specialist: Why shouldn’t we underestimate the value of generalists? Is it okay to be a jack of all trades? What are the working cultures at Silicon Valley and GovTech? Centralized or decentralized? Working for Government bodies – is there autonomy? How to overcome imposter syndrome? How do I deal with growth mindset as an engineer?

Many interesting questions were raised in this episode of our Q&A session. Let us hear from Joel Kek, Software Engineer from GovTech! Joel was part of a team who conceptualized TraceTogether, a digital system which the Government of Singapore implemented to facilitate contact tracing efforts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Before joining GovTech, Joel was the Lead Engineer from PastureMap and the Lead Developer of Neurocern.
