First Remote Hiring Company In Myanmar
Founded in 2018, our mission is to Discover, Develop and Deploy the best and brightest talent from Myanmar to work with companies overseas. We act as a bridge between employers and employees, staying up to date with local issues & complaint with manpower regulations. Our goal is to create a thriving community of like-minded outstanding individuals who can relate to and support each other as co-workers.
Crossworks Myanmar's humble beginnings can be traced back to our founder, Jeshua Soh, wanting to hire several remote talents for his companies based in Singapore. Having first landed Myanmar in 2013, and coming back repeatedly thereafter, Jeshua saw the rapid transition that the country was going through, underpinned by the internet becoming widely available and a young population eager to learn and develop. As he hired the first few team members, the issue of decades of brain drain quickly became apparent, with the silver-lining being that not everyone wanted to leave, and some were even choosing to return to Myanmar.
In 2019, our first co-working space was established as we started remote hiring for other companies with the aim of bringing in more good job opportunities for outstanding Myanmar talent. Amidst the global 'war on talent', the confluence of remote work becoming normalised amidst the global covid-19 pandemic, and a generation of local talent that have come online in the last decade or opted to return to Myanmar, has contributed to the rapid growth in the number of remote talents under our management. As many international companies have opted to pause projects or pull out of the Myanmar market in recent times, even more top talent has become available and we are redoubling our efforts to place these individuals with companies that can provide suitable opportunities.
