Staff Profile : Shawnee Yu

 We spoke to Shawnee, one of our Front End developers about her experiences working at Easy Weddings.


What do you do at Easy Weddings?

I am a Front End developer in IT, which means that I do all of the Front End coding. 

What did you do before you joined Easy Weddings?

I was a front-end developer in a tech company in the inner city, and before that, I worked as a nurse in a hospital! 

What are the most common questions you get at work?

Since I work in IT, there aren’t many questions that come to me, but having said that, I really appreciate the couples and suppliers who kindly give us feedback about our site to help us continue to make Easy Weddings a better site for them!

What do you like best about working at Easy Weddings and why?

Definitely the culture, hands down. I have enjoyed it since day one! 

Here at Easy Weddings, you are not expected to fit a certain mould – everyone is accepted for who they are, quirks and all.

What’s something fun we don’t know about you?

I like geeky fun facts, for example, like amicable numbers, which means a pair of numbers, each of which is the sum of the factors of the other. The smallest pair of amicable numbers is 220 and 284. I think it is kind of romantic if a couple print them on their wedding invitations. It says: “we are different in factors,  but when summed up, we become each other”.
