Ikin Wirawan found his passion technology while still in high school, when he purchased his first computer and taught himself programming. He had his advanced studies at UC Berkeley, where he graduated in 2004 with honors in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Ikin then joined a tech startup in Emeryville, CA as a software engineer. Following in the entrepreneurial steps of his family, he decided to move to Indonesia six months later to launch several online businesses, including an ecommerce platform and a local city search engine. In 2006, he set up an office and hired four developers to support a new programmer outsourcing venture using personal savings totaling US$10,000. Securing his old employer as his first client, WGS quickly grew its customer base through freelancer sites, word-of-mouth, and SEO, moving to bigger facilities every year to accommodate its growth and finally purchased a permanent location in 2012. Critical to attracting early clients was expertise in what was then a niche programming language, Ruby on Rails. Ikin was dubbed SWA Magazine Entrepreneur of the Year 2014 and also featured on February 2015 edition of Forbes Indonesia.
