Regularly ranking in the top 5 most popular travel apps in both app stores throughout our core markets, Wego's commitment to great design and optimised user experiences received mention at this year's Apple WWDC, while the Android version was one of two Asian apps featured at the Google I/O in May. We are also one of the first international e-commerce sites of our kind to successfully establish and engage with Middle East travellers, becoming the most popular travel search sites in the region.
We continue to grow rapidly and expand our talented team. We are a friendly, geeky bunch, originating from more than twenty countries, over five continents. We get extremely excited about new technology and innovation, and work hard to incorporate the latest and greatest to improve our product at every turn. If you love to max out your brain space with techy acronyms in an energetic and pioneering atmosphere, then we think you'll fit right in.
Singapore is one of the most exciting locations to be right now, buzzing with new start-ups, creative ideas and an 'anything is possible' atmosphere. If you think it, you can create it. Living and working within such a forward thinking city where creativity and innovation flourish, inspires new ideas and creates endless new opportunities.
Apart from being geeks we're also avid travellers. Wego was created to help make travel plans online as simple and easy as possible, and we regularly take advantage of our location within Southeast Asia, and the largest low-cost airline networks in the world, to explore Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines and more just a short flight away. Immerse yourself in the exotic and fascinating culture of Asia, with one of the fastest growing, and frankly the coolest, companies you're likely to find. Great ping-pong skills definitely an advantage!
