FunctionEight delivers clear, workable solutions to clients, free of jargon, on time and on budget.

The F1 key is synonymous with the Help function on a keyboard, and the Formula One brand, so it would have been hard to adopt that name. However, being based in Asia we understood the importance of the number eight and being in IT we knew that the F8 key is synonymous with starting up in Safe Mode.
FunctionEight was created – a lucky number and a key you should never need to press if you work with us!
What makes F8 great is the people within the company. To give you a glimpse of our culture, we are flexible and understanding. There is no hierarchy within, all our opinions are valued. Management are really accepting of everyone's idea no matter how old, what rank and who you are.
We strongly value work life balance. We strongly encourage you to take a break from work on your birthday and spend it with your family or friends, enjoy yourself. We want you as an employee to grow with us, that's why F8 also grants allowance to further study and add value yourself.
In short; we value our staff like our own family. Come and chat with us to find out more.
