Innovation Opportunities

Seeking innovative solutions for:

Clariz Adelle Mariano

Software Engineer

Although I grew up near the farmlands in the southern provinces of the Philippines, our dad was able to get us a Windows 95 where we would play games with ASCII art. We slowly transitioned to Windows 98 then to a Windows 2000, each generation with better graphics and performance. My parents were avid PC gamers back then and instilled within me the passion to explore, design, develop things that bring delight and utility to people.

Thanks to a scholarship, I was able to further my interest in computers at a private high school, and eventually attend the prestigious St. Scholastica’s College Manila. After earning my BS in Information Technology, Interactive Multimedia Design and Animation, I joined a company that tried to solve problems of how to handle large amounts of financial transactions among B2B clients, mostly banks based in the US and Europe. Although those are important problems to solve, I sought to have a career where I’ll have a direct connection with the users I’m developing for. I joined a game development company where I was able to pioneer projects for tablet and mobile phones, just when it was at the cusp of mass adoption. However, due to different factors such as lower barriers of entry, better tools and resources, and competition– the mobile game business space and future has shifted. After dabbling in different technologies and creating my own VR experiences and collaborated with some AR applications, I decided to have my hand on web applications, which have more encompassing and have transferable cross-functional skills.
Curiosity is a huge part of who I am. I like to think about the possibilities and conditions. Mixing, hybrid-crossing different elements into something unique, functional, and special. Nowadays, I’m more concerned about the implications of this technical revolution we’re experiencing. How do we make everyone participate? How do we connect people and their business needs? How do we make it sustainable in the long term?
Although I don’t have the answers yet, I’m glad to be part of Xinova’s scale and growth team, working with fellow engineers, designers, and stakeholders to innovate the process of innovation itself.
