Lazada Group-- an e-commerce company --opened its tech hub in Bangkok, Thailand, last Monday (9 May 2016) to accelerate mobile commerce platform development in the Southeast Asia (SEA) region.
The newly opened tech hub will focus on advancing the design and engineering of mobile shopping and selling sites and apps of Lazada for SEA.
"Mobile innovation is a discipline any serious online player must build, and having the best talent is critical to designing products and solutions that are not only intuitive, but also improve the quality of experience and life for our consumers and sellers. We believe that Thailand attracts a highly-skilled talent pool. And, as the leading shopping and selling destination, Lazada is both enviably-positioned and committed to raising the bar for mobile and tech development in the region," said Ifor Evans , Chief Technology Officer of Operations in Lazada Group.
In the following months, the tech hub aims to board more than 50 talents including iOS and Android developers, Go Programming Language developers, and Quality Assurance automation engineers.
Aside from Thailand, Lazada Group has tech hubs in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, and Moscow, Russia.
