Software Engineer at Facebook, Inc

Aaron Ong works in Facebook, Inc.’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California, USA, as a software engineer. In his role, Aaron applies his technical knowledge and analytical skills to develop software products. Aaron collaborates with both technical and non-technically trained colleagues on a daily basis, and he is thankful that the diverse Yale-NUS College community has honed his ability to communicate technical concepts effectively to a wide range of audiences.

“Software engineering is increasingly a people-oriented role. I am tasked to create products that people want to use, and write code that other engineers can understand. These tasks require empathy to accomplish, and my liberal arts education at Yale-NUS College was a great way to develop that.”
