A Passion for the Profession: Meet Jake Kim
December 04, 2017 | Maxwell Technologies
Project Manager | Republic of Korea
What is your role?
I act as a technical interface between Maxwell’s Korean team and outside organizations. My responsibilities include to create and revise technical documents such as product datasheets and user manuals, handle technical inquiries and communicate with customers, and participate in new product development efforts.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
It is such a great feeling when I am able to help customers resolve their issues. When I share technical input gathered from the engineering team, organize necessary tests, and prepare reports for a customer, I feel like the partnership between the two companies will be solidified. I believe in a customer-oriented attitude.
What is your personal endeavor?
I always strive to develop myself as a person by trying new things like studying English, exercising, and reading technical literature. I am sure that the more things I try and learn, the better direction I am headed with my life.
What is your favorite book or movie?
I really like science fiction novels and movies because they broaden my imagination. I especially enjoy trying to understand the author or director’s angle on how certain scientific developments will influence human life in the future. My favorite novel is Armor by John Steakley and I am currently reading Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. My favorite movie is Interstellar.
What is your favorite thing to do in your city?
I enjoy going to traditional local markets on the weekend because they have a unique vibe that cannot be found anywhere else. The markets are not as organized and convenient as modern shopping malls, but I love the feeling of warmth I get from talking to people from different generations.
