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!
