Product Manager

Location: Singapore

Mission

 

Companies need retail data to grow in emerging markets. Their only current option is to pay huge agencies for expensive and inflexible reports.

 

We build data platforms digitizing last mile retail outlets, enabling them to operate more efficiently and collect retail data. We then aggregate these insights for companies and directly & transparently share fair value from this data with local outlet partners.

 

This makes last mile, real-time insights available to companies for the first time while increasing local incomes in emerging markets. Doing good is good business.

 

About Us

 

Next Billion is a for-profit social enterprise founded in Singapore in 2013. We’ve operated rural marketing, consumer data collection, and retail digitization initiatives in 10+ countries across Asia & Africa with partners such as Unilever, FrieslandCampina, and Microsoft.

 

We’re a dynamic 10 person team of field operations specialists, developers, and data scientists. Our headquarters is in Singapore, though many of us often travel and work remote.
