Sean Ho graduated from Curtin University in Western Australia, where he received a bachelor degree in Architecture in 1999. However rather than pursue a career in Architecture, Sean chose instead to follow the IT tsunami of the time, and got his first job as a web designer in an ISP company in Western Australia.
In 2000, Sean joined American Express in their Sydney office. There, Sean worked in a small team of 5 to manage all the American Express Asia/Pacific websites, receiving multiple regional awards for the successful implementation of innovation and change.
Sean later founded W3C Sites as a platform to promote coding with web standard which wasn’t a common practice at the time. His special interest was in web accessibility where he believed the internet is for everyone.
In 2005 Sean moved to China with his partner, where he worked as a web design consultant specialising in UI/UX design.
After returned to his home country of Malaysia, Sean joined Malaysiakini in 2014 as a senior web designer. Today, Sean is a key cog in the Malaysiakini team, where he coordinates across all departments, managing various products within the Media, Tech, and Advertising groups.
