Regional recruiter, SEA (technology), Lazada
2015 was an exciting year for e-commerce pioneer Lazada. Christina Ong highlights three milestones. Firstly, the company expanded its technology team by a factor of 2.5. The e-commerce explosion in Southeast Asia meant speciﬁ c skills were in shortage. To facilitate growth, Ong and her team implemented a robust and targeted recruitment strategy. A second achievement was the opening of the Lazada Group Tech Hub in Moscow, Russia, in February 2015. This bolstered development of the company’s websites and mobile applications to enhance the Lazada online shopping and selling experience. The Russia-based tech operations, along with other workers in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, and the Singapore head offi ce, provide support around the clock for Lazada businesses in Southeast Asia. Finally, the company revamped its corporate website to include a listing of all job vacancies. “We easily have more than 200 vacancies at any point in time,” Ong says.
