Get to know the faces and spaces that make up Usabilla in our Spotlight series. Next up to face our roulette of Infrequently Asked Questions is Front-end Developer, Tjin. When he’s not making his ears happy with some hip-hop, he’s all about Ramen noodles and a plate of gyoza. Mmmm.
Name: Tjin Au Yeung
Position: Front-end Developer
Office location: Amsterdam
Which song best describes your role at Usabilla?
Daft Punk – Technologic
UI or UX
That’s like asking parents to choose between their two children — I love them both equally. But maybe UI just a tiny teeny bit more.
What would you call your own personally brewed beer brand?
I would call it a Tjindian Pale Ale, as a slogan I’d use the one from my favorite drink, Rivella — a little odd but very tasty. Maybe I’d shorten it to oddly tasty.
Tjindian Pale Ale — oddly tasty
Favorite internet meme?
Asian dad because it’s so relatable :(.
What’s the last book you read?
The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. I highly recommended, especially if you’re into David Lynch movies.
Before Usabilla, what was the weirdest job you ever had?
It wasn’t weird, but it was traumatizing. For one month I worked in a food truck at the World Expo Milan flipping burgers. I had to simultaneously handle three grills packed with burgers while a mob of hungry Italian customers were screaming for their burgers. After one month I was pretty much done with the burger game and I vowed to never flip a burger again.
Name one thing that’s on your bucket list
I really want to go to Iran and ride a dromedary.
What would be the title of your autobiography?
The One Who Went to Iran and Rode a Dromedary
Have you ever been on TV?
I played an extra in the movie the Kite Runner. At the end of the movie, in the airport scene, you see the back of my head for 5 milliseconds.
What song are you currently listening to?
Nicolas Jaar – Time for Us
