Singapore — Foodpanda is celebrating its 7th anniversary by announcing that it will be hiring over 500 staff for its Southeast Asia headquarters in Singapore.
Since 2012, Foodpanda Singapore has been managed by parent company Delivery Hero based in Berlin, Germany.
A Delivery Hero spokesperson announced that the company has established Singapore as Foodpanda’s Southeast Asia headquarters in order to “efficiently and effectively scale up” in the region as well as “ensure proximity to the markets it serves.”
“We have been investing successfully in the region and Singapore as a hub, and we are excited about our continued growth, offering a best-in-class experience and innovative tech platform for partners and customers and building a diverse and fun workplace that attracts top global talent” the spokesperson said as quoted in a report by the International Business Times.
Foodpanda Singapore is looking to hire more than 500 new employees across various product development teams including 100 engineers over the next three months.
The food delivery company currently has more than 6,000 riders in Singapore who use PMDs and bicycles in their deliveries.
To ensure riders’ welfare and safety, the company has also partnered with NTUC Income to offer free third-party liability insurance for active foodpanda PMD and bicycle riders starting September 2019./TISG
