Read more about Hui Sheng through the interview our intern had for our #VoicesFromXiMnet campaign:



How was the beginning of your career in XiMnet Malaysia?
I joined XiMnet Malaysia as a Software Engineer after I graduated. My initial role was to build and maintain websites for clients. Soon, we started developing our proprietary Content Management System which is known as XTOPIA today.


Describe your role in XiMnet. 
Currently I am in the Product Research & Development Team, which focuses on innovating and improving our XTOPIA range of products.

Nonetheless, we are still taking care of the internal IT infrastructure to ensure our team member can work without technical interruption.
I also do photography for clients who need photos for their projects occasionally.


What do you like most about your job? And what is the most challenging about it?
I like to research on new technology that solves our daily lives’ problems. The most challenging part is the implementation of new technology, as it needs to jive with our existing daily operations, as well as our product framework and infrastructure.


Can you share with me what are the trait(s) that you think a CIO should equip with?
The passion to keep learning and solving challenges is very important. I believe that every challenge is an opportunity for us to grow and improve.


What would you like to say/advises to the freshmen in the industry?
When you cannot solve a problem, always take a few steps back and look at it in a different perspective. If it still cannot be solved, reset your mind by doing something else and come back to it later because there is no problem which cannot be solved because it is all about our mindset.
