  4. At the first time I got onboard, and i knew that i’m
    going to join TopAds Tribe. My mind got wondering,
    what is TopAds?

    I never heard of it before, and it turned out that is
    the Ads Mechanism for Tokopedia Seller.

    It takes me a day for understanding what TopAds is?
    And explore to all of the existing TopAds feature.

    The first impression is... well, it’s so complicated.

  5. My onboard mentor Riana, Dwiki, Hilmi show me
    what TopAds is. What is the means of CTR, SRP, PDP.
    A lot of questioning those day. While waiting for my
    actual mentor that was leaving for workshop.

  7. The first task that given to me was to do some
    Heuristic Evaluation on TopAds current flow.

    It takes me travel around TopAds and look for flaws
    that we need to fix.

    As an outsider, i see Tokopedia as a mature products.
    Turned out that it has so many flaws that i never
    notice before.

    The hashtag #KamiBaruMulai was true i guees, we
    still need to improve.
    See my work here!

  9. As a newcomer in UX Design, this is my first
    professional experience working as a UX Designer.

    In my tribe we use Figma as the main tool that i
    familiar with. But in my tribe, we use Figma like i
    never imagine before.

    We do a sprint in it. Using the real time collaboration
    features. #PaperlessWorkshop

  10. But the most memorable moment is when we working on some prototype that
    have due time tommorow for a Usability Testing and only got 1 hours working
    hours left at that day . So go on it together, around 5 person at a same time.

    That was awesome

  12. My mentor always give constructive feedbacks, in
    design, ideation, review, documents, all of those

    And even I was encouraged to speakup my
    opinion, there are no discrimination even though i
    just an intern. I can deliver my opinion equally.

    Sometimes my ideas are crazy, but sometime it is
    brilliant. They always appriciate it.

  13. There is one person that i amaze the most, she
    was my senior Zahrah.

    Even though she has a ton of experiences, she
    already on her 6th year on Tokopedia, but she
    ask an opinion to me. Discuss like no

    Even interested with my personal stories and

    fault, it always our

  15. Doing a lot of testing teach me that it was never
    user’s fault, it was always our fault by not giving
    the best.

    Maybe we constrainted by possibilities, but we
    always need to seek more.

  17. “When you can’t find the answer, that means
    your approach is wrong”

    I encountered several time when i stuck at a
    design process. And my mentor always remind
    me to double check the concept, the flow.
    Make a clear of the big picture.

    Sometime we just need take a step back to see
    the big picture.

  20. Our product itself is have some big milestone
    to catch up. Especially when our product is a
    product who help users to gain their success.

    Keep designing, testing, and iterating.

  21. I found some issues from the team
    management that we can improve, and I
    already told it to our lead. Which will be need a
    participation of all the team members.

    With more structured, yet flexible
    management. It will boost up our team
    productivity, mentality to speak-up, and
    openess to personal discussion.
    Our Teamwork

  22. There was several process that I see have an opportunities for improvement.

    Like implement and build our internal design library, considering TopAds
    have a lot of custom component that not included in UNIFY.

    And documentation for it, so we can back at it and revamp it with previous
    research without breaking it.

    In my opinion TopAds’ learning curves is high. So i guess it will help when our
    team scales.
