About me

Pakata Goh

Born in 1990 and raised in sunny Singapore. If you're wondering why my name sounds strange, it's because it's a Buddhist name. I'm Singaporean Chinese. I attended the National University of Singapore (NUS) and graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering in 2015. During university, I was part of the NUS Formula Student team competing in the Formula Student (FSAE) Michigan competiton.

In July 2018, I decided to leave my job as a technical sales engineer in the industrial sector to pursue software development as a career. After about 6 months of self-learning, I managed to secure an internship at a local startup. In Feb 2019, I joined a bootcamp conducted by ThoughtWorks (Singapore).

Since then, I’ve worked in a few startups before my latest position at foodpanda.

In my free time, I dabble in a little photography and keep up with Formula 1 during race weekends.
