How we work: Fast-Forward

We work fast, grow fast, and build fast. Life at MessageBird moves in fast-forward motion. We’re roll-up-your-sleeves-and-make-it-happen kind of people, and we focus on making an impact from day one. We thrive on transparency, agility, and finding solutions. Mediocre is not in our vocabulary.

We are all driven by one ethos: Get Things Done. We love shaping things together and leveraging different perspectives, because that makes our products better. Our Birds are empowered with freedom and opportunity; in return, we expect honesty, courage, and agility. We own our work, and sometimes we fail. And then we get back up and cross the finish line — together as a team. Sound refreshing? We think so, too.

Life Happens

We don’t have a “one size fits all approach” to work, because we all have different ambitions, needs, and lives. Our “Life Happens” mantra embraces the diversity of perspectives that shape our company. We don’t do rigid policies and procedures. Instead, we’re flexible in how we support each individual employee, so that you can get the most out of your career at MessageBird — in turn, making us collectively stronger.

    Office Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at MessageBird (Singapore) in July 2019.

    Interview

    It was pleasant and smooth for the first interview. Got shortlisted and waited for the second interview to happen but it went quiet on week 1. Emailed HR to ask on Week 2 and got a reply to wait a while longer due to travel requirements of the Vice President. On Week 4, I received an email saying that they have gone to accept only 1 person that has continued with the interviews. Not very professional to keep me waiting while their only intention is to interview 1 person.
