The e27 team has prepared another rundown, this time focussing on platform-oriented companies in various verticals
As Asia continues to be a dynamic and diverse place for Internet businesses to flourish, e27 brings another awesome list of companies that are looking for talent. This time, it’s for aggregators that are making sense of various market verticals. If you or someone you know who might a good fit, do apply and spread the word!
Let’s look at who’s hiring!
1. Lazada (retail aggregator)
Hate it or love it, Rocket Internet-backed Lazada continues to experience growth in its industry, citing that the number of third-party sellers has increased dramatically from 478 in November 2013 to close to 8,000 in November 2014.
In terms of raising rounds, Lazada has raised more than US$430 million to fuel its growth in Southeast Asia, investing in supply chain, logistics, warehousing, mobile commerce, regional network of e-commerce services, localisation, hiring, and marketing. As its main strength is in operations, it’s no wonder that Lazada is searching for more associates in that department to join it.
2. Passport Asia (fitness aggregator)
Based in Singapore, Passport Asia is a mobile app that allows users to pay a single monthly fee and will be able to access 50,000 classes from 300 gyms and studios. In a July interview with e27, Passport Asia’s CEO Gene Yap revealed that the team previously raised US$220,000 with more than 11,000 paying subscribers.
Passport Asia is currently live in these cities: Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Seoul, Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Sydney and Melbourne. With a credible team that has collectively served in advisory roles for over 20 startups, Passport Asia seeks to hire several individuals who will fit in the growing company.
- Head Corporates & Partnerships
- Chief Growth Officer
- Customer Care Vendor Support Representative
- Senior Software Engineer (Ruby on Rails)
3. Job Forward (job aggregator)
Job Forward, Singapore’s online social recruitment platform, also makes it on this list. It’s a platform that optimises social media to distribute job vacancies so that more people can reach out to both active and passive job listings.
Earlier this year, Job Forward also recently launched Startup Essence, a service that empowers startups and SMEs to engage the right talent through social recruiting. In a way to bridge both social media and online recruitment, Job Forward helps break down society’s traditional mindset towards recruiting potential employees. In order to further improve the platform, Job Forward is searching for a front-end web developer on its team.

The company currently monetises through a subscription model for agents, who will pay either US$28 a month or US$280 a year to use the service. On the other hand, the site will be completely free for the consumer.
99.co has also been backed by well-known venture capitals and investors, such as 500 Startups, Sequoia Capital and Facebook Co-founder Eduardo Saverin. In order to grow the company even further, 99.co is opening up several positions for interested applicants, with some focussing on freelance and others full-time positions.
