We are a small team that creates giants. Over the last decade, we have partnered with some of South East Asia's most recognised organisations—startups, unicorns, or Fortune 500s, and grown with them. Our work speaks in stories. As a fully bootstrapped award winning product and strategy consultancy, our goal has remained constant: to discover uncommon problems and create well-thought-out digital products. Our thoughts are shared in our blog.
We are public by default. One of our most loved output is our Playbook, where we detail out exactly how our engineering and design teams are built, how they work, communicate, collaborate and grow.
We are also an equal opportunity workplace and encourage applications from all walks of life. We intentionally focus on building diversity of abilities, skills, opinions, gender, ages and geographies. Our team currently consists of 60% people who identify as womxn, with representation from almost every corner of the country.
Learning from our experiences, we've now decided to flex our product-building muscles with Obvious X, our high-autonomy product arm. We are currently testing the waters with our first product: a strong yet simple leave management system, Pause, that is already creating ripples among its users, and aim to build more such prolific products in-house in the near future.
The common belief system that girds our actions has three elements:
Grow with us
At Obvious, we look for multi-faceted, T-shaped individuals, who bring a lot to the table other than just their craft. Our hope is to fight the default of exclusion. And to that end, we address these elements of implicit bias by eliminating data points such as educational institutions & qualifications, organisations worked at previously, last drawn salary, current/permanent address, place of origin, etc. We let our applicants self-select if they consider themselves falling in the axes of inclusion. Our hiring process evaluates thoroughly for craft focus and values-connectedness.
Perks & Benefits
Since March 2020, we have been a remote-first organisation and continue to be so. We will give folks a 6-month heads-up, should we decide to go the hybrid workspace way in the future. While people are working remotely, we have enabled everyone with a WFH setup - both tech hardware and furniture.
