I had the opportunity to join Lazada's Data Science team in its formative stage. Lazada was at the sweet spot of lots of data and our own infrastructure, yet with plenty of opportunities to build core systems from scratch. I was given the chance to build a number of data products end-to-end, including our ranking system, category classifier, review classifier, etc. Every day, I look forward to coming to work and learning from the experienced professionals around me. Together, we strive to be one of the top data science teams in South-East Asia.
I joined Lazada Marketing team after spending 2 years at one of the world's largest consulting firms. Coming from a non-marketing background, the Chief Marketing Officer helped me directly to get on-boarded and involved in various discussions within Marketing. I feel that I am surrounded by amazing Indonesian young talents that are always willing to learn and explore further. And they are the ones that make Lazada marketing team as the best in Indonesia!
There is never a dull day at Lazada! It’s a hyper-growth company at the forefront of making huge impact on a hyper-growth industry, in a hyper-growth region. Every day I get excited coming to work, interacting with intelligent and passionate professionals who value and respect my work and opinion. I can see the difference we make to sellers and customers through empowerment and technology.
Lazada is a place filled with opportunities and constant learning. You will always be challenged as well as challenging yourself. A strong focus is emphasised on employee development and well-being.
Being the #1 e-Commerce platform in SEA makes me extremely proud as we are all super passionate about this revolution in the most exciting part of the world. Given the authority and discretion to kick off and pilot new ideas and projects have given us the chance to grow and learn together in a young and vibrant company.
It’s really amazing to be part of a company that is made up of many extraordinary talented individuals. Everyone is highly motivated to grow the business and serve our customers.
My roles have been very varied, ranging from commercial to supply chain. I am constantly challenging myself and learning new things. I have also learned that ability and willingness determines how much responsibility you are given here, not necessarily whether you are senior or junior.
An entrepreneurial environment and culture, and thinking big are the reasons why I love it at Lazada. Most importantly, the work we do will have an impact on the business and community.
