About Me

Hi there! Welcome to my website.

My name is Albertus. I'm a Software Engineer who enjoys tinkering with user interface and crafting products with great user experience. I specialize in payment & front-end development but also love stitching different parts of software components. I was best known for my work on creating Layout Explorer during my internship at Google.

Currently, I'm working as a Senior Software Engineer at Speechify, building new and exciting features to grow our web-based text-to-speech products (Chrome Extension, Web App, and Onboarding/Payment site).

Before that, I was at Stripe for almost two years, right after graduating my CS undergrad study. I started in Singapore for the first year and then relocated back to Indonesia the next year to become the founding engineer of the Indonesia team. I spent the majority of my time there expanding Stripe's alternative payment method (APM) offerings in Southeast Asia.

My background

I grew up in a small town in Indonesia, and I consider myself very blessed to have a traditional path to Software Engineering and Computer Science.

My journey with programming started in high school when I tried to participate in Competitive Programming in a hope to get to the national levels of Olympiad in Informatics. I failed to qualify for nationals, but the experience set a strong foundation in computer science for me, which helped me a lot in the next several years. Without this head-start, I would probably have struggled to survive undergrad.

Random fact about me ✨

I'm a nerd and love watching anime during my leisure time. Also, I enjoy speed typing; on average, I can type around 150-160 words per minute. Hit me up on TypeRacer
