Looking for a real challenge, like digging through truly big data, sitting at the same table with the biggest names in the digital scene, from Vietnam to Singapore, or building one of the most recognized consumer brands in the region? We got it all here. If you’re in for the fast-track, 10x growth in the next few years, you’ll love it here.

Hyper-charge your Personal & Career Growth

We genuinely believe that solving problems which nobody has solved before can only happen by growing ourselves, personally and professionally. We give you challenging tasks and then let you struggle – of course not, just kidding. We invest in you through personalized coaching and world-class trainings and our advisory panel gives you access to key experts in your field - no matter whether we are talking soft- or hard-skills. And if you fail? We’ll fail together and be right there to pick you up - we’re in this journey together.

Shorts or burka? We accept you as you are. Need to leave early for an appointment? Fine with us. Want to de-stress over a game of FIFA? There’s a 60-inch TV in the fun area. We are diverse not just in our nationalities (25 and counting, by the way) but because diversity is the building block of who we are.

And yes, we have benefits, too - health insurance for everyone (incl. your family), team budgets, and tons of food. Join our family!

Work with an Inspirational Leadership Team

We take leadership seriously. Sure, we can impress you by name-dropping some of our senior management’s past companies and buzz-wording around agile, but we rather focus on creating the right environment without all the corporate baggage. This means transparency in what we do, open communication, and the trust to make your own decision. If you have any concerns or problems, go straight to the “bosses”. Forget about counting hours, let’s rather focus on impact and quality. That’s how we build a successful company, with your talent and the right attitude.
