Arvin Badiola

Software Engineer and Project Manager in Philippines

Hire me

Hey, I’m Arvin. I'm an IT professional living in the Philippines involved in both technical and managerial aspects of software development.

As a software engineer, I am most reliable in projects that involve research and development work. Exploring new technologies comes natural to me. My capability to quickly pick up frameworks and create solutions with them sometimes borders the uncanny. It would be rather presumptuous to say that I am ninja but I am a paratrooper if you get my drift.

Mentored by real leaders and always trying to improve, my management style is not that of a superstar. I take pride in knowing how to actually listen to everyone and achieve balance between upper management, customers, and the development team, and formulate a solution in a manner more technical and detailed than it seems. If you're familiar with game theory, I am attuned to finding the Nash equilibrium in any situation. We could all use a win-win situation right?

My personality type is INFJ. Outside the office, I go for less strenuous hobbies. I run both a professional blog and a leisure blog. I also draw stuff quite often and randomly give them away. My music is mostly blues, jazz, indie, and alternative. To stay fit, I play badminton. I also neither drink nor smoke though I might appear pretty high when sleepless. I'm also a staff of a nonprofit promoting volunteerism.
