Summary

What we do

We're the world’s leading Internet TV service for emerging markets, offering subscribers thousands of TV shows, movies and more. Our HQ is in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with services in Brunei, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand.

Why Work For Us

We’re a standout brand, and we do things a little differently.
Every day, we show up to play hard, win more and suck less.
So if you’re looking to make a big impact at a revolutionary company and work with a high-performance team, it starts here.

Our Vision

To be the new face of entertainment, bring the world’s best content to people, localised to each market, at a price that everyone can afford. Ultimately, to lead the internet entertainment revolution in emerging markets, redefining television for 1 billion people.

Our Culture

Have a look at our www.taoofiflix.com to get a feel of iflix and the way we do things around here.

BE SIMPLE but not simple minded.
In talk and tech, make it easy so we’re always accessible to everyone. Get straight to the point. Embrace ‘less is more’. Romance it. ‘Less is more’ is your new lover.

Don’t do mediocre work. Half-baked does not fly around here. Ditto for substandard quality. Simple does not mean ‘WHATEVER!’

BE CURIOUS but not reckless.
Because there’s always a better way, and we’ll find it. Try different approaches, change and adapt. Ask for feedback and learn. Ask how things work. Indulge the inner child in you (the one that’s always looking for answers, not the bratty one).

Don't beat yourself up over a failure. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Remember, there are no dumb questions. Is there?

BE REAL warts and all.
This means being human, honest, and accountable. Have real conversations with real people. REALLY listen. Go beyond surface level where it’s pretty and delve into the beautifully flawed. Support and connect.

Don’t be a dick. Don’t yell a lot just to prove your point. Don’t stay up all night just to appear dedicated. Don’t make it a habit to miss dinner with your partner, your kid’s music recital, that overdue waxing appointment (Because let’s be honest, all these things are just – if not more important as work).

BE BRAVE but not stupid.
Have some balls, take on challenges head on, and continue to disrupt the status quo. Speak up and tell it like it is. You don’t need to continuously seek permission (because we trust you to get it right and own the fallout if it bombs.) Plus, we’re not in kindergarten.

Don't forget the Sunshine Law: you must be confident that your decisions and actions stand up to public scrutiny. Break the rules, just not the law. We don’t do bail.

BE PLAYFUL but not careless.
We are cheeky and fun, and at times, a little bit silly. We are a serious business but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Come to work in colourful quirky outfits. Challenge your colleagues to a cross-dress lip-sync face-off or a DJ battle. Celebrate our weirdness.

Don't forget your professional commitments and deadlines. Don't humiliate or abuse your colleagues or yourself. Playtime should be fun, not dangerous.

Our Engineering Processes

We follow an agile approach utilising SCRUM.
We believe in good coding standards and practices and are always open to doing things better and constantly strive to do things better, not being afraid of change.

Our Hiring Process

Cultural fit is non-negotiable us ... and probably to you too. We invite potential iflix developers to a face to face interview where possible. This is where we ask you about your particular interests, your tech knowledge, you ask us all your burning questions and we see whether we're a potential match for each other. Next round is a codility test (which takes roughly 1.5 hours). Following satisfactory test results; we'll say "Let's Play"!
