We are A fun, young and innovative team!

Piktochart is a startup that deals with information and graphics. Our team members have an average age of 26 years old and we are largely based in an island north of Malaysia, called Penang. We like having fun in what we do, we are young and we also love innovation.

  • A flat organization - there is no hierarchy
  • An opportunity to work near a World UNESCO Heritage Site (Georgetown)
  • Bi-weekly fun (karaoke, restaurants, hikes etc)
  • Opportunities to attend conferences/events abroad
  • Work from home Fridays
  • Wii station, coffee machine and plenty more snacks in the kitchen
  • Regularly planned team feedback
  • A great team to grow your talents

It's more than just a job

We support charities and education (teachers and students) and we really want to touch and improve lives! We have been around for not more than a year but we find our jobs really satisfying, being able to help a non-graphical person feel like Picasso. Working at Piktochart enables you to be part of that life-changing community.
