About the Job


We work together as a team and our engineers never work in silos.  


Cross-team collaboration is the key ingredient to our success. As an engineer at Bowtie, you will be participating in meetings with different stakeholders and a cross-functional project team from early on in the product development process. This is to make sure that engineering challenges / barriers will be uncovered and discussed at an early stage of design/decision making.

We are on a constant search for better ways to operate. At the moment, we are exploring the benefit of the 6-week sprint cycle from Basecamp. But we are always happy to take on new suggestions and discover alternative options.


While communication is crucial, we do appreciate that engineers need a quiet and disturbance-free environment to be the most productive. We make arrangements to let our engineers work from home since our early days and we have flexible hours policies that let people work on their schedule as long as they can effectively collaborate with different parties.


We are a lean team, but we have built/are building some big software that takes hundreds of engineers and years to build.


If you are looking to join a multi-award-winning team (HKICT Fintech Award Winner of 2017, Hong Kong Insurance Award 2020, just to name a few) that has been featured and recognised by tech companies, such as AWS, get in touch today!
