Why join us

While technology has played a major role in solving retail for end-consumers through B2C platforms, the traditional, fragmented base of mom& pop retailers have largely been ignored. This is ironic because a typical mom& pop store has a huge (8-10%) cost advantage over modern retailers given their low tax bills, low rent and employ family. Traditional retail in emerging markets is a source of livelihood to millions. Yet they lose out for lack of access to marketing, inefficient and expensive sourcing and limited and expensive working capital. This problem is prevalent across most emerging economies where 80-90% of retail is offline and spread across hundreds of thousands of small stores.

 

This is where Ula comes along - Indonesia is a $300B retail market with ~70-80% of it being offline through small stores - so imagine the potential of our solution! Our app allows these small stores to access a wide selection of products at a competitive pricing, delivered right to their doorstep, as well as working capital solutions.

 

We provide a simple front-end app, powered by sophisticated back-end systems that determine everything from pricing to inventory to intelligent salesforce route planning. We are building many first of their kind technologies in the world and need your help in building the right systems.

 

We are funded by Tier-1 Venture Capital Sequoia Capital India, Lightspeed India, Quona Capital and B-Capital Group - as well as prominent industry angels such as the founders of Udaan, Rahul Mehta of DST Capital and other established Indonesian angels.

 

We are a culturally diverse company with 38% women and 7 nationalities - the best minds are required to solve tough problems irrespective of where they come from. If would like to join us reimagine the future of retail in emerging markets, we would love to hear from you!

About us

Ula is reimagining how retail in emerging markets should work in the smartphone era. We’ve witnessed the rise of B2C e-commerce over the last decade in both India and Indonesia. But the small retailer, the heart and soul of retail, has been left largely underserved by e-commerce even though they’re spending hours every day on their smartphones. Ula provides a simple front-end app, powered by sophisticated back-end systems that determine everything from pricing to inventory to intelligent salesforce route planning. We are building many first of their kind technologies in the world and need your help in building the right systems.  

 

Ula is an e-commerce, technology start-up headquartered in Singapore, with offices in Bangalore and Jakarta though we are quite flexible in terms of where our colleagues choose to work from. We are funded by Tier-1 Venture Capital — Tiger Global, Tencent, Sequoia Capital India, Lightspeed India, Prosus and among others is Jeff Bezos via his family office Bezos Expeditions.

 

We are a culturally diverse company with 38% women and 11 nationalities. We believe that the best minds are required to solve tough problems irrespective of where they come from.

About you 

You are driven to solve tough problems with technology. Let’s take pricing for example. Imagine a world where each product in e-commerce were to be priced differently for each customer based on where they are located, how much they buy or where they prepay or pay-later. This leads to a massive optimization problem because pricing too low incurs opportunity cost while pricing too high means a competitor takes that business. This is just one example of how B2B and B2C e-commerce are different and why B2B offers the opportunity to innovate. Now couple this with routing for a sales agent. How should pricing work with a sales-person’s CRM app? Depending on how far you take it, it is a massive machine learning problem.


If you’re passionate about technology and its applications to business problems, you’re curious and imagine what a new world can look like, love working with global colleagues on global problems and don’t mind taking risks that move the needle and treat failure merely as an opportunity to improve and iterate, you’d be a good fit at Ula.

About us

We bring the power of e-commerce & FinTech to the small store owners across South East Asia, starting with Indonesia. We are headquartered in Singapore with offices in Jakarta and Bangalore. We are founded by two ex-Amazonians who have diverse backgrounds and multiple years of tech-industry experience, and has raised funding from leading VCs such as Sequoia Capital and Lightspeed India. We also have been featured in TechCrunch, Tech in Asia and Economic Times.

We recently raised US$87 million in its series B funding round co-led by Tencent, Prosus Ventures, and B Capital.

Other new investors that joined the round include Bezos Expeditions, the investment firm of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, as well as Southeast Asian funds Northstar Group, AC Ventures, and Citius. Meanwhile, existing investors such as Lightspeed India, Sequoia Capital India, Quona Capital, and Alter Global.

 

We are looking to build a high caliber team across Indonesia, India and Singapore. We are on a mission and are hiring selectively for building what will be a very large company in a few years.

 

While technology has played a major role in solving retail for end-consumers through B2C platforms, the traditional, fragmented base of mom& pop retailers have largely been ignored. This is ironic because a typical mom& pop store has a huge (8-10%) cost advantage over modern retailers given their low tax bills, low rent and employ family.

Yet they lose out for lack of access to marketing, inefficient and expensive sourcing and limited and expensive working capital. This problem is prevalent across most emerging economies where 80-90% of retail is offline and spread across hundreds of thousands of small stores.

 

This is where Ula comes along - Indonesia is a $300B retail market with ~70-80% of it being offline through small stores - so imagine the potential of our solution! Our app allows these small stores to access a wide selection of products at a competitive pricing, delivered right to their doorstep, as well as working capital solutions.

 

We provide a simple front-end app, powered by sophisticated back-end systems that determine everything from pricing to inventory to intelligent salesforce route planning. We are building many first of their kind technologies in the world and need your help in building the right systems.

Ula Interview Process

 

Our interview process consists of (online)Technical rounds and culture fit rounds.

 


About you 

You are driven to solve tough problems with technology. Let’s take pricing for example. Imagine a world where each product in e-commerce were to be priced differently for each customer based on where they are located, how much they buy or where they prepay or pay-later. This leads to a massive optimization problem because pricing too low incurs opportunity cost while pricing too high means a competitor takes that business. This is just one example of how B2B and B2C e-commerce are different and why B2B offers the opportunity to innovate. Now couple this with routing for a sales agent. How should pricing work with a sales-person’s CRM app? Depending on how far you take it, it is a massive machine learning problem.


If you’re passionate about technology and its applications to business problems, you’re curious and imagine what a new world can look like, love working with global colleagues on global problems and don’t mind taking risks that move the needle and treat failure merely as an opportunity to improve and iterate, you’d be a good fit at Ula.

About us

Ula is reimagining how retail in emerging markets should work in the smartphone era. We’ve witnessed the rise of B2C e-commerce over the last decade in both India and Indonesia. But the small retailer, the heart and soul of retail, has been left largely underserved by e-commerce even though they’re spending hours every day on their smartphones. Ula provides a simple front-end app, powered by sophisticated back-end systems that determine everything from pricing to inventory to intelligent salesforce route planning. We are building many first of their kind technologies in the world and need your help in building the right systems.

 

Ula is an under-the-radar, early-stage technology start-up headquartered in Singapore, with offices in Bangalore and Jakarta though we are quite flexible in terms of where our colleagues choose to work from. We are funded by Tier-1 Venture Capital — Sequoia Capital India, Lightspeed India, Quona Capital and B-Capital Group. It is also backed by prominent industry angels such as the founders of Udaan, Rahul Mehta of DST Capital and other established Indonesian angels.

 

We are a culturally diverse company with 38% women and 7 nationalities. We believe that the best minds are required to solve tough problems irrespective of where they come from.
