Top 3 Reasons To Join Your Team

We genuinely believe in combining the understandings of both humans and technology to craft experiences that are not only useful and delightful, but can also create behavioral change and positive impacts.

To do so, we have built a team culture that foster not only professional excellency and collaboration, but also respect and nurture personal growth.

Here's something about us to help you imagine what it's like to be part of the team:

  • We are playful. We cannot live without laughters. We love sharing from the most random thoughts to big crazy "what-ifs". There is always room for jokes and wild imagination no matter how hard we work. Because how do we improve anyone else's experience, if we don't know how to enjoy life ourselves?
  • We put people first. We see people for who they are and who they aspire to become, not as cogs in the machine. We respect differences in backgrounds, perspectives, and preferences. So no unnecessary social pressure to blend in or impress. Just come as you are, and focus on growing into nobody else but your best self.
  • We are driven by growth. Most of the time, that means we move at a crazy speed. We learn and adapt to new things every single hour of the day, from new knowledge about user behaviors, new industry insights, new tools, to new plans. We built, measure, learn, and iterate constantly.
