Company Description

Mutant is a weird name for an agency, we know.

We’d love to tell you there’s a cool reason for it - like being exposed to gamma radiation or being bitten by a spider - but alas, our origin story is a little less dramatic.

We started in 2012 as a PR agency, led by one guy with a simple idea - to grow an agency that focused  on getting business results and removing agency fluff. From these humble beginnings, we evolved.

Now, we’re a regional agency with offices in Singapore and Malaysia, servicing clients across Asia Pacific and globally for their PR, content marketing and branding needs. We’ve bagged a few awards along the way, too. Most recently we were named Southeast Asia Consultancy of the Year 2020 by PRovoke Asia.

So, what does this mean for you?

You’re here because you’re excited about joining a dynamic team that makes an impact on clients’ business results. Whether that’s increasing sales, improving employee retention, or driving inbound leads, your results are what we measure our success on. 

Mutant is now looking for talented, experienced and personable individuals to join our growing clan of Mutants. We want people who are equally as enthusiastic about being at the forefront of a new, content-driven phase of PR and marketing, and who can work hard without taking themselves too seriously all at the same time.
