3 Questions to
Baariq Fairuuz Azhar
I graduated as an Information Systems Major at Brawijaya University Indonesia in July 2021. I am a software engineer (Front-end heavy). I had pretty much experience in software development since I was a college student, especially in Web applications.
How You Came to Join eftax
The first time, I knew eftax was when I was a third-year college student. At that time, there was a webinar talking about working in Japan in the IT field held by AIESEC Brawijaya. One of the source persons is Tomoaki Nakai-san, CEO of eftax Co., Ltd. From this webinar, I can conclude that eftax has a global and supportive environment.
In February 2023, I was looking for a global remote or onsite opportunity. Fortunately, at that time, the eftax LinkedIn account opened remote opportunities. I registered as a candidate, followed the recruitment process such as challenge and interview, and finally got an accepted announcement the next month.
Tell us about your eftax episode
My first impression when I entered eftax is that eftax is more global friendly than I thought. Employees of eftax come from various countries, such as Japan, Indonesia, Philippines, Morocco, etc. I love the remote work style in eftax. I can decide when and where to work. This is very beneficial for me. For example, I do not need to waste my time commuting home and office. I can replace that time with other things like doing exercise.
I entered eftax as a Frontend Engineer. But, I told Nakai-san and Morikawa-san that I want to be full-stack (Frontend, Backend, + DevOps) in the future. They support me by giving me time & courses to learn new knowledge, such as the opportunity to take AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Certification. To be honest right now, I still feel not really impacted for other employees in eftax. Because, I am still new and in the adaptation phase to learn a new work style in eftax. But in the future, I hope that I can contribute more to others and can be a full-stack engineer according to what I expected.
