Software Engineer – Team Lead

Based in: Kuala Lumpur


Our mission is to become the largest lead generator for e-commerce in South East Asia. With more than $5m funding in our bank, 130 employees, and 10M monthly page views we are very well setup to achieve this goal still this year. But we are hungry for more, with e-commerce in SEA still being in its infancy compared to mature markets like Japan, Europe or America, we believe we can play a bigger role in the ecosystem.

We are ready to take the next step and for that we are looking for a passionate Engineering Team Lead who can drive this change and lead our engineering team to the next plateau. As owner of a topic, you are in the driving seat and we like to go fast. Contribute to the vision of iPrice and break it down into tangible data-driven steps. Excel in execution in a multi-cultural environment where team work and collaboration is the key ingredient for success.

With a superstar, internationally-sourced management team, combining experience from BCG, Microsoft, Zalora, Siemens, IBM and other world-class organizations, with local talent and insights from the 7 countries we are operating in regionally, iPrice is well positioned for continued success and we want you to be a part of it!
