Programme Manager (for PADANG & CO)

We work at the interface between large corporations and startups. Corporations come to us with both conventional and non-conventional business problems that need to be solved, and we find game changing  ways to solve these problems through running paid pilots with startups and innovators.

We are sector agnostic and have worked across Fintech, Retail, Big Data, Adtech, Marketing Tech, Manufacturing and Supply Chain amongst many others. We work with startups across funding stages right from Seed to Series C, who view us as inbound business development / revenue opportunities. In short, think of us as the Skunkworksdivision of large corporations.

As a Programme Manager, you’d get to straddle the tech ecosystem as well as get an intimate understanding about business functions in big corporations. You’d be exposed to all phases of the programme right from scouting and scoping of business problems from corporations to identifying the right startups to solve these problems as well as defining the key metrics to measure the success of the paid pilots.
