    Serving Citizens from the Heart

    The idea arose because they realise that there are times when one contact point cannot offer all the relevant help that their clients' - typically citizens from the lower income or vulnerable groups - need, and the case would have to be referred to another partner, explains Christina.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at GovTech full-time

    Pros

    I am stationed at Hive. My thoughts on the place, people and culture.
    - Progressive
    - Open minded team and management
    - Passionate smart people
    - Fun environment
    - Cool, empowering mission to serve the nation

    Cons

    - Some of our engineering practices are at its infancy (need more experience and expertise)
    - Need more senior engineers to guide the overarching processes
    - Occassional culture of adhoc meetings can be disruptive

    Advice to Management

    Given our collaboration with multiple agencies, have conversations about direction and prioritization with the heads of agencies i.e. PSes etc. The second guessing of the direction can be unproductive.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GovTech (Singapore (Singapore)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    One face to face interview followed by technical assignment to be completed in 3 days.
    Before interview they ask the filled up interview questionnaire 5 pages asking your working experience, personal attributes, career interest and past performance rating.

    During the face to face interview, they only clarify things on the questionnaire or ask the elaborate more. Lastly ask you any questions for them. Pretty standard stuff.

    There are two parts to the technical assignment . One is the coding assignment another is the written test. Not too difficult.

    After that they will come back with an offer, if you accept the offer they will proceed with reference check and arrangement to sign contract.
