GoBear will commence its new regional software development team known as the GoBear Code Unit in Ho Chi Minh City on February 1.

As Asia’s first and only metasearch engine for insurance and banking products, GoBear has shown tremendous growth in under three years, with presence in six countries, helping over 15 million users, and featuring more than 1,200 products.

The GoBear Code Unit based in Vietnam will be responsible for building GoBear’s next generation application code. This includes branching out into newer technologies like Microservices, Serverless Code Execution, Schemaless Databases, AI, and In-memory grid computing.  

“In line with our strategy to continuously improve our product offering, we are expanding our in-house software development team. The expansion of this team is an integral part of our continuous growth and the need to ensure that our platform achieves optimal performance while developing new technologies for our business,” said Ivonne Bojoh, CXO and co-founder.

Ivonne added: “Vietnam was chosen for various reasons to set-up our primary team. The fact that software development is an encouraged sector in Vietnam reflects the country’s potential and ambition to further strengthen their tech community.”

True to the startup culture of GoBear, the GoBear Code Unit will be located in The Hive Saigon co-working space in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 2. Developers will have the choice between hugging a couch, working in the GCU studio or hot-desking when they feel the need to switch-up their environments. GoBear will also actively contribute to the tech community by hosting regular meet-ups and organising events.

Stephan February, GoBear’s technical director, will lead this new team alongside his current team in Singapore. As a practicing software developer for more than 20 years, he has experience in a broad range of technologies from Linux and Unix to Windows, and in systems administration, systems architecture, network architecture, as well as software development.

“We are building a team of front-end, back-end, and full-stack developers. We seek individuals who are serious about code craftsmanship and have an always-be-learning approach to our fast-paced industry,” said February.

Positions open for applications are:

  • Front-end developer

(Javascript, HTML, CSS/Sass/Less, Web Components, AMP/PWA)

  • Back-end developer

(Microservices, REST, GraphQL, RDBMS, NoSQL, Unix/Linux)

  • Full-stack developer

(Good mix of Front-end and Back-end experience, along with strong leadership qualities)
