Share a little about your company:
Dealmoon operates the leading social shopping community & KOL network for Chinese expats around the world, as well as e-commerce advisory platform for global consumer brands seeking to reach Chinese-language shoppers. In 2016 alone, Chinese shoppers engaged with Dealmoon more than one billion times from the U.S., Canada, Australia, Japan, Korea, France, Germany, Italy and Spain as well as China.
In 2011, Dealmoon integrated with Chinese social platform Weibo, expanding its reach to Chinese consumers worldwide. Providing not only product and shopping tips but also life guidance on how to adapt to their new homes outside China, Dealmoon’s Weibo channels now have more than 10 million followers.
Please describe a typical day in your office:
Dealmoon is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, with additional offices throughout the US, London, Canada and China. Pre-Covid, our mostly Chinese and American employees were typically heads down, working on their laptops in our open, casual work space, jumping into conference rooms, or messaging at lightning speed on Ding, a Chinese version of Slack! Many of our employees work remotely from around the U.S. so Zoom or video calls have always been a part of the Dealmoon way. Now, we are all working remotely with the occasional Zoom Happy Hour to stay connected!
