Change Maker


The most common way that something gets done at LOOP is as follows:

Someone has an idea, they share it with a few coworkers, they collaboratively refine what it should be, and they go build it. People are their own project managers, and this works because everybody on the team understands our business and what's important to us and to our Learners and Producers. The point is…

You will have lots of autonomy and a huge impact on our business.

Our start-up environment is located near a MRT station, and is relaxed and close-knit, with regular team lunches, monthly Fun-Time Fridays, and frequent health-related activities such Yoga, Salad-Making, and Archery etc.

We have a great team and a friendly place to work where we enjoy the freedom to innovate in an exciting start-up environment. Our environment requires imaginative thinkers with the ability to work independently on simultaneous projects and collaborate effectively with other team members.

While we pride ourselves on being flexible, there are certain things we feel very strongly about:

  • Strong work ethic. We value punctuality, professionalism, pride and a desire for success.
  • Dependability You can be relied on to keep your promises. You are always on time and prepared for meetings, and deliver your work on schedule and on budget. Your reputation for reliability precedes you because you’ve proven over time that customers, clients and colleagues can trust you to do everything you say you will. In an uncertain world, your customers, colleagues and clients will appreciate the stability you embody.
  • Simplicity over everything. If you're smart enough to write 100s of lines of clever spaghetti code, you should be smart enough to realize that someone will probably break it later. It can be hard to make things simple and elegant, but it’s worth the effort and the time.
  • Great teams are better than the all-star players. No matter how great someone's ideas are, they'll be improved upon through collaboration with other stellar engineers.
  • Understand the whole business. Great software isn’t built in a vacuum -- it requires hard work from extremely smart people across many disciplines and an understanding of how it all fits and works together.
  • Have fun. In order to produce exceptional work, you have to love what you do.
