Hi there! My name is Rio Bahtiar, but most people just call me Rio. I was born in 1991 in the beautiful city of Bondowoso, and in my free time, I love nothing more than a good book, a swim, or a sci-fi movie.
I studied computer engineering at Amikom University in Yogyakarta City and graduated in 2014. Since then, I’ve been working as a software engineer at various tech companies in Yogyakarta City and Jakarta. In late 2016, I joined Tokopedia, an online marketplace, as a software engineer. I quickly moved up to senior engineer and led a small team responsible for managing all the microsites at the company. I also worked on the company’s WordPress websites and created promotional microsites using ReactJS, a popular programming language for building user interfaces.
In 2018, I had the chance to work on a project called the Promo Code Engine Management, which involved using technologies like Golang, gRPC, Redis, PostgreSql, and NSQ. In July 2019, I left Tokopedia to take on new challenges as a solo engineer or freelancer. Since then, I’ve worked on a variety of projects, using both frontend technologies like ReactJS and NextJS, and backend technologies like WordPress plugins, Golang, and Laravel.
In March 2022, I joined Sekolah.mu, an education technology company, as a senior software engineer. I’m currently working on the frontend using Vue.js and Nuxt.js. Overall, I’ve had a great time in my career and am always looking for new opportunities to learn and grow.
