Electric8 (affectionately known as E8) is a hands-on group of product and growth specialists with offices in Singapore and Jakarta. We help companies in SE Asia build the right digital experiences and scale them systematically on the right channels. Among the few in the region pioneering a test-and-learn approach underpinned by research and data, we’ve worked with some pretty big clients like Capitaland, gaming gear giant Razer, the Discovery Network media conglomerate, as well as some of the region’s fastest growing startups such as Indonesia’s Tiket.com and One Animation, makers of the popular childrens’ cartoon the Oddbods.
Our vision is to contribute to changing the ways that tech products are built and scaled in the region while getting to do meaningful work, with great people in an environment that allows people to bring their whole selves to work.
To help us with our next growth phase and targets, we’re looking for a talented Product Design Intern to support E8 product designers and leads on creating problem solving designs for our clients that attract, convert and retain users. This job could lead to a full-time position at E8.
