When Hollywood imagines the cities of the future they’re either sterile places filled with hover cars and ivory spires or squalid stacks of concrete, neon, and metal. If only they knew that the city of the future exists now, in beautiful, action-packed Malaysia, they might see that the city of the future is full of greenery, chic apartments, and mouth-watering restaurants.

With a great location that is only a short drive from Kuala Lumpur, Cyberjaya is the Silicon Valley of Asia. Developed as a science park with a focus on technology, it’s no wonder that a pile of international corporations have chosen Cyberjaya as their headquarters. Amenities abound, including The Cyberjaya Lake Gardens, which is a nature park that spans a whopping 400 acres. Who needs a hover car when you can go for a wander in the trees? Other notable stops are the basketball and tennis courts, swimming pool, driving range to practice your swing, and a go-kart circuit when the need for speed strikes. Add in an incredible variety of international and fusion restaurants and you’ll be living the future now.

If you’re a Perl programmer with a passion for finance, this role may be the one for you. Our client is a financial company whose stunning growth over the last twenty years shows that they belong in the city of the future. They’ve built a company with an international presence on that idea, and business is booming.

Living in the city of the future provides all kinds of fun and excitement but sometimes, you may find yourself wanting to get away. Exploring the rest of Asia from Cyberjaya couldn’t be easier. You’re only a short drive from Air Asia’s home airport, meaning that you’re connected to the rest of Asia for weekends away whenever wanderlust sets in.

For those ready to trade their present-day role for an exciting new opportunity in the city of the future, get on your comms device (read: computer) and let us know that you’re ready for what comes next. Apply now!
