Is your town a programmer’s paradise?

When you imagine a town, what words come to mind? Sleepy? Ho-hum? Not this town! Located in the Silicon Valley of Malaysia, the next stop on your tour of interesting places to live and work is Cyberjaya, a town of more than 100,000 people with an epic science park at its lively, exciting centre. Cyberjaya became a town in 1997, and this millennial wonder has been wooing multinational companies ever since. You might wonder, is one of these visionary global companies hiring and, more importantly, when is the next flight to Malaysia? We don’t know about the flight schedule, but as for the rest, read on!

The client is a financial company whose meteoric growth over the last twenty years means that they’re a solid investment for anyone looking to make a change in location for their career. They started with the idea that online trading should be available to all, and from there, they’ve built a company with multiple locations worldwide. If you want to be part of a business that is thriving, this may be the perfect opportunity for you.

Cyberjaya’s nearest neighbours and best pals are picturesque Putrajaya and buzzworthy Kuala Lumpur. After a work week that includes lunch breaks spent lounging in Cyberjaya’s 400-acre nature park you might already feel like you’re on vacation, but if not, why not go for a quick jaunt to experience the restaurants and nightlife of two of Cyberjaya’s closest cities? Or, if international travel is more your speed, a quick car ride to Kuala Lumpur brings you to Air Asia’s home airport. All of Asia’s many exciting cities are only a short plane-ride away, so why not take advantage of your new home smack-dab in the hub of Cyberjaya and do a little sightseeing on the weekends?

Let’s recap: new, rapidly growing town? Check. Exciting travel opportunities a short drive from home? Check. Excellent employer in a scenic science park? Check, check, check. Now that you know Cyberjaya checks all your boxes, the only thing left to do is send us an email and let us know you’re ready to put down roots in the Multimedia Super Corridor in Malaysia!
