“Having worked in the Silicon Valley for close to 20 years, I decided to come home because I wanted to try a different direction in my career. I think the tech scene in Singapore has ramped up quite a bit, with a stronger focus on software engineering and engineers. That’s good because by cultivating a strong engineering culture, making things and owning core technologies, is what will differentiate us.” Jiayi Chong, GovTech's Distinguished Engineer and returning Singaporean.
