Video Transcript

Speaker: Dung Vu, QA Engineer

Let's meet Dung!

Dung Vu: Hi, my name is Dung. I'm a QA Engineer for Wonolo app. My day to day job is to improve the quality of the app for the worker. I have been working for Wonolo for five years. I'm currently located in Toronto, Canada. I've just moved here last year from Vietnam.

What events in your life have brought you to your current role today?

Dung Vu: I'm always been interested in the tech field. Before joining Wonolo, I worked for a Switzerland company as a professional tester for a digital wallet app. And then my friend told me about this job. I went to the internet and looked for Wonolo and immediately felt amazed by how Wonolo could help low income workers to find a job, pay their monthly bills. Also work from anywhere, anytime.

What was the first thing that caught your eye about Wonolo? What made you decide to join?

Dung Vu: The first thing that caught my eye when I reached out about Wonolo was the article that Yong, our founder, wrote about Wonolo and the mission of it. I feel like he genuinely believed in helping people, especially low income workers, to improve the quality of their lives.

What is one of your favorite memories at Wonolo?

Dung Vu: I have been with Wonolo for five years so there are a lot of good memories to me. So it's really hard to pick one. If I need to, then it might be the Da Nang trip, in the middle of Vietnam. It was an offsite between the Vietnam and U.S. Engineering teams. We had a game named "Finding the Yellow Chicken." They provided a map which had 25 bars in Haiyang and then the chicken would hide in a random bar. I was able to find him on my first try because I somehow said that he would be in, he would be in that rooftop bar. It was a really fun night and thanks to that offsite, we got to know each other very well. And also it helped to improve the cooperation between both teams.

Please finish this sentence: if you really knew me, you would know that ______ .

Dung Vu: If you really knew me then you would know that I am crazy about badminton. I have been practicing and learning about badminton for five years. I watch almost every badminton league , every month, in different countries. It is a pity that I could not play badminton anymore when I moved to Toronto, but I will soon find a way to play it again.
