Razer celebrated yesterday (October 26) the grand opening of its new Southeast Asia (SEA) headquarters, worth S$100 million, at one-north.
The seven-storey building features an iconic black façade with acid green lines streaking across the building – a tribute to the brand’s instantly recognisable aesthetic.
The ceremony was officiated by Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat, who applauded Razer for shaping and nurturing the gaming community both locally and globally.
Razer’s offices in the United States, Germany and Singapore are already Great Place to Work-certified and with the new HQ, Razer is poised to extend its propositions to be a place to do great work.
“With the new Razer Southeast Asia headquarters, we’re excited to expand our family in Singapore from 600 to 1,000 employees,” said Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO of Razer.
There are currently over 30 job listings on Razer’s LinkedIn page, with available roles including product marketing, development manager, software engineer, data scientiest, and social media specialist.
Back in July, Razer also posted a job to hire a blockchain, crypto and decentralised finance (DeFi) lead in Singapore, signalling their entry into the crypto space.
“Our gamer-centric ecosystem has redefined the gaming experience for more than a decade with the introduction of innovative solutions and whole new product categories, and we’re not slowing down,” added Tan.
“The new regional hub represents everything that Razer stands form, from innovation to design to sustainability, and will not only be home Razer’s growing staff, but to up-and-coming entrepreneurs, and even gamers looking for a place to train and learn as well.”
Razer has allocated a designated space in the new HQ just for hosting esports workshops, training sessions, and supporting local esports teams and talents.
The company will also continue to Razer forge close partnerships with various stakeholders and esports federations in SEA to support the growth of esports in the region.
S’poreans can visit the RazerStore and RazerCafe
The public is welcomed to the Razer SEA HQ for a chance to visit the first RazerStore in Singapore and get coffee served at the RazerCafe from October 28 onwards.
RazerStore Singapore offers fans a chance to sample and explore Razer’s full range of award-winning products to truly immerse themselves in the next generation of gaming experiences. Visitors will also be able to get a first-hand look at Razer’s latest innovations and creations.
Razer is also introducing a new F&B concept that marries technology, design and refreshments through a state-of-the-art robotic barista arm.
At the RazerCafe, guests can order a beverage at the store or pre-order a cup of coffee via the RazerCafe App and collect it in-store. The AI will then make a cup of latte, tailored precisely to each customer’s unique tastes.
The new Razer Southeast Asia Headquarters embodies the company’s sustainability initiative #GoGreenWithRazer, Razer’s 10-year plan to preserve nature and protect the environment.
Equipped with eco-friendly features, such as solar panels to power parts of the day-to-day operations and sensor-enabled lighting system for energy effectiveness, the building has been conferred the Green Mark GoldPLUS certification by the Building and Construction Authorities in Singapore.
Fulfilling a brand promise that was made earlier this year, Razer’s new Southeast Asia Headquarters incorporates sustainable practices such as removing all single-use plastics and utilising BAMBOOLOO – The Nurturing Co.’s brand of sustainable paper products.
To celebrate the opening of Razer’s SEA HQ opening with fans across the region, Razer will hold a livestreaming event on November 17 at 12pm. You can tune in via Razer’s social media channels: YouTube, Facebook, Twitch.
