Why join us?

Tech in Asia is creating the future of business journalism. As the leading media publication focusing on the Asian tech industry, we’ve never stood still.

Since 2018, we’ve built a profitable newsroom with thousands of paying subscribers hailing from prominent companies – and that’s on top of the millions in monthly pageviews that we get.

We’ve been doubling down on high quality journalism, publishing investigative stories, interactive infographics, scoops, and financial analyses. We’re spotlighting trends before anyone else, and we’re not afraid to ruffle feathers if we need to, while abiding by our statement of ethics.

We believe we’re at an inflection point. We’re looking to ride on the momentum and invest even more in quality content. As Walt Disney once said about the film business, “We don’t make movies to make money, we make money to make more movies.”

We’re a young newsroom with fresh ideas, and we’re looking to scale operationally and build something that can stand the test of time. And we need your help. If you’d like to answer this call, reach out to us.
