I’m Hiring!

ITviec IT jobs in Vietnam

I believe that Vietnamese technology professionals have the ability to be some of the best in the world.

That’s why I’m launching ITviec.com, a new job website 100% focused on technology and IT jobs in Vietnam.  Our mission is to nurture Silicon Valley’s spirit of technology innovation, creativity and excellence in Vietnam.

ITviec will be the place for skilled technology people and companies to meet and build great things.  It will have skilled jobs for developers, designers, testers, software architects, project managers, user experience experts and IT professionals.  It will also contain career management advice and event information for technology people.

Launching ITviec is also a chance to build the kind of culture and the kind of company I have always wanted to build.  ITviec will be small but filled with Silicon Valley-style passion, fun and a commitment to building great things that add value to people around the world.  We call our employees “VIPs” because in our book each of our people is a Very Important Person.  I am personally committed to helping each VIP reach his or her life and career goals.

Working at ITviec will not be easy.  There will be big challenges and sometimes long hours.  But for the right people I can promise adventure, fun, a sense of achievement and personal growth that will be remembered for life.

    It appears to me your deviating some of your responsible into the job roles, esp administration master. You going to find somebody who says they can do everything in that role, but the reality is, they will under perform and i am not being skeptical, but that just the reality. This is coming from a business owner with years of experience

    Best,
