Editor – Koimoi.com
Age & Experience:
1-2 years work experience as a creative writer/content translator.
Working in line with:
The massive team of 5 people at Koimoi!
As a practice, we have typically matched candidates with their existing salary packages and throw in lucrative performance incentives; and of course ESOPs.*
*In the exit of mobile2win China to Disney, and when Nirvana Venture Funds invested into Games2win – the group has now a proven track record of demonstrating how valuable its company ESOPs can be.
The idea is to make the candidate actually take an ownership role and then provide additional compensation on performance.
