[WEBINAR] GI NET – Global Indonesian in Silicon Valley

Article by:

Silicon Valley is undoubtedly known as the global center for high technology, innovation, and social media. It is the home for many high technology companies with global impact, whether consumer-oriented ones like Google, Apple, Facebook; or business-oriented enterprises like LinkedIn, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, and TIBCO Software. Our panelists Wens Gerdyman and Arvian Heidir have been applying and honing their craft there for the past twenty years.⁣

Born and raised in Surabaya, Wens got his bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, followed by an MBA from the University of California, Berkeley. He co-founded an award-winning mobile courseware company, Arcadia Apps, and has worked in product management roles for various high-tech companies, including Yahoo! and eBay. Currently, he is a Senior Product Manager at TIBCO Software Inc.⁣

Hailing from Jakarta, Arvian Heidir has passion for computer science. After graduating with an MBA from California State University focused on Information System, Arvian pursued a software engineering career in the internet industry. For the past decade, Arvian has been working at LinkedIn with increasing responsibilities, the latest role being an Engineering Manager.⁣

Why not meet them directly to hear the stories behind their career progression? Straight from the USA, they are going to join us as panelists in our next GI Net Series. Moderated by Prof. Dr. phil. Hana Panggabean, an expert in Cross-Cultural Psychology and Industrial and Organizational Psychology, we plan to peel the many layers of their story!⁣
