OnLoop announces new VP of Engineering and Design
Start-up veteran Chin Jin Hong joins the Collaborative Team Development company
SINGAPORE, June 3 2022—After a global search, OnLoop announced it found its new VP of Engineering right where the company was founded: Singapore. Chin Jin Hong, formerly of foodpanda and Traveloka, brings over a decade of experience in SaaS, start-ups and software engineering to the OnLoop team. He will oversee product development from both design and engineering aspects as OnLoop builds a world-class platform to transform traditional and clunky performance management for the hybrid present.
“I am absolutely thrilled that we were able to bring Jin to OnLoop,” said OnLoop CEO and Co-Founder Projjal Ghatak. “Jin’s ability to simplify the complex and build for scale really set him apart. He was initially brought on solely as an Engineering leader—a challenging job in itself, especially at an early-stage start up. After a few weeks, we soon realized that combining Engineering and Design under Jin’s leadership would elevate not only how quickly we build Product, but how well and intuitively we build Product.”
For Jin, OnLoop was an opportunity he couldn’t pass up. “When I first saw OnLoop, I felt a deep connection to the product immediately. As an engineering manager, growing teams is challenging. Companies spend a lot to develop teams, both in terms of money and time. And there are tons of different biases around giving feedback and assessing teams well. The problem is a challenging one to solve. And in a true start-up culture like OnLoop’s, I’m excited to significantly contribute to a solution for companies and teams of all sizes, all over the world.”
Jin has previously managed engineering teams as large as 15 while working closely with UI/UX designers and product managers. Prior to joining OnLoop, Jin led teams at foodpanda and Traveloka and spent time as a software engineer at Global Blue and Asia Fusion Technology.
