Why work at Zipmex?

First of all, why not? But also for the following reasons.

Do great work.

We can talk around it, but at the end of the day, this is why we want to hire you. We come to work every day (not literally of course — not weekends or holidays or whatever, but you get the idea) to create something.

Hopefully something really great.

What is great work? Great work has a purpose, it solves a problem, it creates ways for people to connect. If it wins awards or if other people think it’s cool then that’s nice, we guess, but that's not why we do it. We do it because it has impact, it helps someone, it makes their lives easier or better or just more fun.

Do great work in a strong culture.

Culture is one of those words. People throw it around a lot. It’s hard to define exactly what it is. But it’s something you feel pretty much straight away.

We’re not going to lie. The culture at Zipmex isn’t perfect. Like every group of people, we have our issues. But we are all dedicated to continuing to improve, and we think that’s a pretty good start.

We are value-driven.

Our values define who we are on our best days and who we aspire to be every day. They continue to evolve and change with us, but we created them to facilitate a culture that continues to create great work. Want to know more about our values? You're in luck, here it goes.

Strength through diversity.

When people come from different backgrounds, the work they create together becomes better. We don't look for culture fits, we look for culture additions. The people at Zipmex come from many different countries, and from all walks of life.

We are growing, really, really fast.

Zipmex has tripled in size every year since launching in 2019. We are one of the fastest-growing companies in Asia, and we’re not slowing down any time soon. Plus, we’ve done this without sacrificing culture or quality.

We want you to live your life.

Life happens. It’s a fact, we’ve checked. It’s the good and the bad, the ups and downs. And we want to be there with you every step of the way. We want to give you space when you need it and time when you want it.

We want to do everything we can to help you live your life. It won’t always be easy but we want to do whatever we can to not make it unnecessarily hard.

That means time off, hardship time off, parental leave, medical insurance, profit sharing, team building—team drinking, shared meals and shared experiences.

You will love us, you will love the city, but most importantly you will love yourself.

Can’t wait to meet you,
