About Us

Agorize is the leading platform for online innovation challenges with its HQ in France. We have an amazing 100 people team (Hong Kong, Paris, Montreal, Stuttgart, Singapore, Tokyo) all sharing the same ambition: becoming THE missing link between large corporations and innovators around the world!

For 10 years, we have been helping 300+ companies such as Dai-ichi Life Insurance, Astellas Pharma, AWS, Jardine Matheson, Google, Microsoft, Hitachi, JX Nippon mining & metals, Schneider Electric to accelerate their innovation process and collaborate with our network of 5M+ innovators (ie. students, developers, startups and employees) across the globe.

We are building up our team of talented, driven individuals (of 15 nationalities!) to continue establishing Agorize’s position as a leader in open innovation in Asia! We are looking to hire a Project Management trainee who can join our APAC PM team in Singapore (or Hong Kong!).

Who we're looking for

We are looking for a skilled and driven project management trainee to accompany our clients on their open innovation journey throughout the 3 main steps of the project:

What you will be doing

STEP 1: SETTING UP THE OPERATION

  • Together with the Senior project manager, you will prepare the kick-off meeting with the client and define the framework of the open innovation challenge
  • Building the platform: advanced HTML/CSS skills are not required but basic knowledge and/or the motivation to learn will be highly appreciated!
  • Coordinate with the different teams to ensure the success of the challenge (communication, business developers, design, etc).
  • As PM, you are THE missing link between the different departments.

STEP 2: LAUNCHING THE CHALLENGE

  • Following up with the challenge participants throughout the entire operation and replying to their questions and queries
  • Making sure the project is running smoothly and reporting to the client (frequent checkpoint meetings)

STEP 3: ORGANISING ONLINE / OFFLINE FINAL EVENTS

  • Organizing entire final pitching events from beginning to end: check on venues/catering providers, follow-up with participants’ attendance
  • Post-challenge: following up with travel expenses invoices of all the participants + participate in the debriefing meeting with the client.
Who you are

You are based in Singapore (or in Hong Kong) and are fluent in English (Japanese is a BIG plus!). You have a deep passion for innovation, and you would like to be part of our project team to become a bridge between our Asian offices. You love difficult challenges and you are ready to take on this ONE!

MUST HAVE:

  • Language skills: Fluent in English and ideally, Japanese!
  • Organization and Planning - You have a track record of planning successful projects and delivering under tight deadlines.
  • Nerves of steel - Not only will you have to help with the logistics of our clients' projects and in hot phases juggle a long To Do-list, but you will also have to hold their hands as they will probably be twice as nervous as you to create a great challenge.
  • Proactiveness - You are self-driven and independent
  • Problem Solving - Being resourceful and not afraid to ask questions

NICE TO HAVE

  • IT skills - you don't need to code full-time, but it will save us both a lot of time if you already know how to do basic programming in HTML/CSS.
  • Design - You have basic editing skills (Ps, Ai, Id)
  • Online conference tools - You have good knowledge of how to set up virtual rooms
  • Digital Marketing - You have basic knowledge of Google Analytics
What we offer
  • Fast-learning environment, entrepreneur, and team spirit
  • An incredible team of innovators and hustlers
  • Rapid growth opportunities for strong performers
  • Great exposure to expand your network and work with some of the top brands worldwide
  • Duration: 6+ months (with the possibility to convert to full-time after this period)
