Last spring, I suddenly decided to have a short trip in the middle of the semester. I bought a ticket the day before my departure and left for Jeju Island for 6 days and 5 nights. 🏄♂️ ( '19.05.05)
👋 Hey! I am SeungHo Baek.
I have spent the past few years for learning Design thinking & Programming in my major. Most recently, I'm studying business theories to get better understanding of IT business where I wish I have opportunity to work in.
Currently I'm working at ad-tech startup MOLOCO(have you heard about it? The team is pretty awesome) as a Business Intern to become more active learner and put what I've learned into action!
I enjoy playing tennis 🎾, riding a motorcycle 🏍, and drinking beer with my friends 🍻 in my free time. But above all, I love to interact with people. Please feel free to contact me via below 😀.
🧞 Aspiring All-rounder
UX/UI & Human-Computer Interaction
I've been absorbed in UX/UI & HCI projects ever since I first learn it. Whole new world have been sprout ahead me and I found that design is not just about visual and graphic. I learned how to build services for human not just considering a little about people at the end of the pipeline, but taking people's needs as a starting point.
At some point, I felt I should learn programming and computer science to become a better designer. Luckily there were curriculums meant to teach basic programming concepts and theories in my major, and it was good starting point to learn to code. While learning basic stuffs, I joined IT project club and built some web services to balance between learning and doing. After a year of activity, I quit last summer but I am still self-teaching myself to get better. Currently I'm working on building iOS apps to keep up and get ahead.
Business & Start-up
Since I was designing & building some services, I was curious about what's the difference between mine and real business. And what it means to provide services for real customers.
Luckily I could spent my last summer in growing edu-tech start-up where I had the opportunity to work with a great team of engineers & designers to make a critical new feature for the platform which resulted in an 10% increase in conversion rate.
