Volleyball Player, Occasional Violinist and Software Developer
This month’s Sertifi Employee Spotlight is on Software Developer Allen Hung. Keep reading to learn more about Allen’s role, his proudest moment at Sertifi, and what advice he’d give his teenage self.
What is your role at Sertifi and tell me about your day to day?
I’m currently transitioning to the Integrations Development team, but I previously handled all technical aspects of our Salesforce integration. My time is split into four categories: L3 support, development, sales engineering, and internal improvement. That can mean anything from discovery calls with technical stakeholders, root cause analysis on reported issues, and auditing our internal knowledge base.
How has your role changed since moving to an integration focus?
I’m dedicating more time than ever into development, which means getting to learn new concepts and coding patterns. In turn, this spearheaded some personal projects to make content accessible, transferable, and reproducible.
What is your proudest moment at Sertifi?
I completed a migration project that generated a new revenue pipeline. I’m super thankful that everyone on the Salesforce team trusted me to combine both my technical and non-technical skills to deliver on design, implementation, and project delivery. It really allowed me to learn about different business processes I normally wouldn’t have insight into and has helped immensely in shaping my sales engineering.
What advice do you have for prospective new hire candidates?
Reach out to different departments and stay curious! You never know what tips and tricks will also work for your day-to-day or a particular project.
What are 3 words to describe Sertifi?

What do you miss most about being physically in the office every day?
Being able to talk to everyone and my two monitors.
What do you like best about working from home?
No commute times!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Volleyball, tennis and practice violin on occasion – I played for 12 years.
What tv show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love?
I don’t really watch popular movies or tv shows, but the most recent stand-up routine I watched was Josh Johnson.
What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13?
Don’t spend too much time being an adult, and always be a good friend even if they’re only around for a little while.
