I'm Ahmad Banyu Rachman, a UX Engineer from Indonesia. Banyu literally means 'water' in Javanese. Weird name, but rare. I was born in April, 1995.
I had an interest in visual things (graphic design, typography, animation, cinematic video, etc) since I was in elementary school even though in school life, I really loved Math and Physics. But, inadvertently I went into Computer Science majors and stuck in this coding world.
I love to watch European football (soccer, if you are American) especially AC Milan, Manchester City, and where Cristiano Ronaldo is playing. Can't live without music, play some instruments, and a big fan of Muse. If you love to watch movies/shows about time travel, we can talk about it all day long.
Some my experiences...
DataOn - UI UX Engineer
2020 - Present
2020 - Present
Currently, I'm working as UI UX Engineer. I'm Involving to build SunFish HR SaaS, the biggest Human Resouce Information System in Indonesia. At the HR Dev department, I'm helping the team to design the feature starting from the ideation until the prototyping for the design phase. Next, I implement the front-end side before delivering it to the next developers to be implemented on the main project system.
Also, I'm starting to design and code the SunFish Design System to be implemented on the next upcoming features/modules.
Mostly designing in Figma and writing Sass code.
Binar Academy - UI/UX Design Facilitator (Part Time)
2020 - 2021
2020 - 2021
I had a part-time job as a facilitator in Binar Academy to teach in UI/UX Design class for the Wave 5. Initially, it has 45 students (we call it Binarians), but after the first chapter, the class is divided into two classes. One of them stayed learning with me. I facilitated the gold and premium plan (7 chapters, 3 weeks for each chapter).
My students are from various backgrounds and levels in their fields. But, unfortunately, in this pandemic time, what we can do is learn from home via Zoom, three times a week. Until the end of the class, sadly, I didn't meet one of my students in person.

2017 - 2020
2017 - 2020
I started working at Solve Education! as a software developer before my graduation ceremony. In the final year, as the team was getting bigger, I was moved to the product department and got the UX Engineer role. There, I helped the team about the UX stuff from the research and design before helped the website development team to implement the front-end side.
As UX Engineer, I helped the team to create Webse UI, a design system that can be used as a CSS framework to make the web-based applications are in the same theme. I had a responsibility to help the product development from the beginning, including providing the wireframe and the high fidelity mockup, and did some usability testing and user research. For the design stuff, I used Whimsical to create the wireframe, mind map, and flowchart; and Figma to create the high fidelity visual.
Besides that, I also helped the team to maintain our main website, did some administration request, handle the account management (Goggle Suite, Slack, Gitlab), and helped the onboarding process for a new member. Worked with the team members from some countries like Singapore, USA, India, and Nigeria.
PT Pindad (Persero) - Web Developer Intern
PT Pindad is an Indonesian state-owned enterprise specializing in military and commercial products. Pindad provides the armaments and munitions for the Indonesian National Armed Forces and other uniformed agencies mainly to support the defense and security capabilities of the Republic of Indonesia.
As a web developer intern, I and my friend Arief created an information system for budgeting called 'Sistem Informasi Rancangan Kinerja dan Anggaran (SI RKAP) PT Pindad (Persero)' with the Information Technology Division. Have you ever code while some people in the building next to you is working for explotions? That's an amazing experience.
