If your intention is to come here to dig some dirts about Tiktok/ Bytedance, I’m sorry — There ain’t such of it.
Looking back, yesterday, 08072022 was my official offboarding day with Tiktok Singapore as the project that I was heading has come to an end.
Past weeks (especially the past few days) have been intense and emotional. Getting all the clearance to share the updated product direction to the the existing users (who are already annoyed by the sudden plans) ain’t the easy feat. There were (less) angers, fears, disappointment shared among the community. Went through Round 1 with Partners and now Round 2 with Users.
I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who’s there for me, the team and of course the product. Being the sole headcount for the past 11 months ain’t easy, not everything is a bed of roses. Despite everything has to be done remote but thank god for the opportunity to work with some of the smartest and kindest people in Singapore and across the globe.
I will be taking some time off to spend the crucial days with family this month (so many things have happened concurrently and leaving no breather for anyone) and to work on NextBlock and piggyback in the meantime. And yes, will blog more!
