Linkedin Singapore Jobs IT LinkedIn Launches Singapore Office, Now Hiring

It’s a nice Saturday evening, with my favorite cookies and coffee. I was browsing through LinkedIn just now and noticed there are currently job offers from from the company in Singapore. This made me a little curious, so I googled a little more and learned that LinkedIn recently launched an office in Singapore .

Marketing Interactive confirmed the news and reported that the office will be located at Marina Boulevard, near Microsoft Singapore. So far, LinkedIn Singapore is looking for folks with experience in advertising, finance or human resource:

    * Marketing Director – APAC
    * Account Director – Marketing Solutions
    * Financial Controller – APAC
    * Financial Planning & Analysis Manager – APAC
    * Human Resources Director – APAC

LinkedIn Singapore’s office will focus on sales. No engineering-based job has been offered yet. It’s pretty much the same for Google and Facebook Singapore where sales is of primary focus.

Besides Singapore, LinkedIn also has strong interest in Japan and China. LinkedIn’s efforts in Asia will be spearheaded by Arvind Rajan who joined the company in 2008. He now leads the company’s initiatives and efforts in markets outside the United States and Europe.

Prior to joining LinkedIn, Rajan co-founded Grassroots Enterprise, an interactive public affairs firm where he developed pioneering online grassroots marketing and influencer programs for Fortune 500 companies. He spent nine years with the firm, where he served as Vice President of Business Development, Chief Operating Officer, and Chief Executive Officer before it was acquired by Edelman Public Relations.
