About Wende Kong
💼 Past Experience
After completing my undergraduate education from The University of Western Australia in Australia in 1998, I moved to Shenzhen, China in 2001 to work at Huawei. There, I worked on various back-end components for large-scale content, design and delivered front-end features from ground for Windows and Windows Phone platforms. I was also responsible for online service monitoring and service quality improvement. I was also a part of the team that built APIs and Tools to make the most performant Office products on the planet! In 2012, I moved to Microsoft in Bellevue, WA and worked on developing mobile apps for ad-free social networking. I also worked on developing Bing Travel App to help users find destinations across the world and read reviews from travel experts, tips, and photos from other travelers, search and book flights and hotel reservations, check flight status, watch 360-degree panoramas, slideshows and videos of scenic spots, read news, and share content with friends. But my most challenging project was working on “Perf Counter Analyzer”, a de facto performance analysis tool for distributed services (SharePoint) widely used in Microsoft Office Division. I was also responsible for architecting and implementing the staff cloud engineer/tech lead position at Teradata. There I built Cloud Platform to integrate software/services/products from Teradata, Microsoft Azure, AWS, and other 3rd party providers as cloud offering. And finally, I was a Staff Cloud Engineer/Tech Lead at Teradata from April 2017 to November 2019, which was my last significant project at Teradata.
