The challenge:Growing Pains of Modernisation

With a successful long-standing history in print media, our client was undergoing significant transformation to digitalise and publish news through online channels. In addition to changing their customer consumption habits from print to digital, their legacy systems also slowed down their digital transformation journey.

Our client needed access to top IT talent based locally in Singapore to help speed things up again– this is where TEKsystems came in as a strategic partner and hit the ground running.

Our proposal:Cutting-Edge Culture

Collaborating closely with the Director of Engineering & Product to understand their transformation roadmap and strategic ambitions, TEKsystems formulated an attractive employee value proposition for the client. The shift towards implementing open-source, cutting-edge technologies to modernise their IT landscape was a key differentiator used to attract top talent.

Leveraging our understanding of our client's needs and our extensive talent network, we identified experienced candidates across multiple skillsets including Software Engineering, Cloud & DevOps, Data Engineering, Science, & Governance, Project & Product Management, and UI/UX Design.

Real-world Results

Since April 2022, TEKsystems have successfully placed 36 permanent candidates, 81% of which were local Singaporean or permanent residents - a result of our extensive local candidate networks.

Following its launch on both the App Store and Play Store in Singapore, our client’s mobile app was among the most popular ones in newspapers and magazines category, with our Senior Product Manager taking an instrumental role in its development.

Owing to our strong track record in fulfilling the client's permanent talent needs, our partnership has expanded to support their contingent workforce requirements.
