Business Intelligence & Finance Intern
Based in: Kuala Lumpur
We are Southeast Asia’s one stop shopping destination having consolidated millions of products and promotions from leading local and international online shops into a single discovery engine. Having successfully closed our Series A funding round last year, iprice is designed to become the largest Southeast Asian aggregator for retail shopping. With a motivated team of more than 120 people we have amassed a catalogue of over 70 million products and reached more than 10 million shoppers.
Business Intelligence is central to the growth of our business, as it provides us with the non-financial data granularity required to understand the levers of growth and how to best pull them to increase revenue. Finance, on the other hand, deals with all the financial/accounting processes and data with a high focus on the costs-side of the business to ensure that our growth is profitable and sustainable.
As such, collectively, the BI and Finance teams cover all the key components of our business and are pivotal to our overall continued success. We are looking for a highly analytical, driven, and curious data guru with a strong knowledge of accounting to join us.
As a Business Intelligence and Finance intern at iprice, you will have the opportunity to help one of SE Asia’s fastest growing businesses scale in a booming e-commerce market. With access to one of the region’s largest and most robust databases, encompassing everything from consumer demographics to on-site behavior, you will use the latest cutting edge Business Intelligence systems to help our management team make the right business decisions. You will also use accounting software and liaise with service providers and internal teams to manage our expenses, our balance sheet, and our cash flow.
With a superstar internationally-sourced management team combining experience from BCG, Microsoft, Google, Siemens, BMO and other world-class organizations, iprice is well positioned for continued success and we want you to be a part of it!
