It has been focusing on creating an online adaptive talent platform that enhances the skills of employees while providing them an open opportunity with leading tech companies across Asia.

“We’re constantly looking at ways to empower talents by helping them build their skills, connections, teams and careers. In other words, we bring humanity to technology and put the power back into the hands of the job seekers,” said Djoann Fal, co-founder and CEO of GetLinks.

During its three years of operation, GetLinks has established a community of talents across the tech world, ranging from developers, designers and digital marketers to operation managers and sale leaders.

Its priority is scaling up in existing markets by acquiring candidates through a series of networking activities, including organising events, producing content, and supporting digital transformation and talent mobility.

“Ultimately, we want to build an adaptive talent workforce and encourage the world’s best to help build a Silicon Valley in Asia,” Djoann said.
