Lucasfilm first, and now Twitter; who’s going to be next?

It might be common knowledge that Lucasfilm has an office in Singapore. Yup, the same Lucasfilm that produces movies like Star Wars and Indiana Jones. That made for some bragging rights; but now, Singapore can add one more to that growing list.

Enter Twitter.

Twitter in Singapore

Twitter had already opened a small office in 2013, and it has a current staff count of 80. However, we know Twitter is finally getting serious with the opening of their regional headquarters right here in the little red dot. The official opening was done by Minister for Communications and Information Yaacob Ibrahim.

I don’t know about you, but I would be pretty interested in working at Twitter. The good news is that they plan to add over a hundred jobs “over the next few years”. Jobs on offer include technical staff, “data analytics professionals, product specialists, engineering and technology support.”

Teh Tarik rocks, so that’s an additional reason to apply for a job at Twitter.

Twitter’s HQ is located near Raffles Place, at Market Street, with a size of 22,000 square feet.

“Singapore was the clear choice for us.”

Managing Director of Online Sales

A look at their office

We all know that Twitter is modelled after birds. The Market Street HQ stays true to that; with birdhouses located around the office and meeting rooms named after birds. The office also pays homage to the Asian culture, and incorporates Peranakan wall and floor tiles into the office design.
