Thailand is an excellent location for people who work in the IT industry. It is already home to thousands of foreign families, workers, and retirees who love being there and don’t plan to leave. Two years on from the Covid-19 pandemic, Thailand is beginning to open its doors properly again and there are more and more new job opportunities for people seeking employment here. Popular job hunting and networking websites like LinkedIn can help you explore what’s out there that could match your expertise and skill.
Most IT jobs (at least the office-based ones) will mean you’re looking at locating to Bangkok. In Thailand (like elsewhere in the world), employers were more and more open to remote working and many allowed their employees to begin working from home. However, with Covid-19 restrictions now fully lifting, remote working isn’t as guaranteed as it once was. It’s highly likely that more and more companies start requesting their employees to return to offices very soon, at least for part of the working week.
IT jobs in Thailand
Thailand (especially Bangkok) is home to many multinational and international companies. Many of these have job roles specifically for expats and foreigners. Any expat who works in the realm of IT will find a huge range of job opportunities here. Most multinational companies want the best the industry has to offer. However, there are job positions available at all levels so even IT job seekers with only a few years under their belt can find a suitable post here.
The most competitive roles are usually marketing positions but there are typically lots of roles available and lots of international companies and Thai companies alike are looking for marketing teams quite often.
Without further ado, let’s look at the top IT companies in Thailand hiring in 2023.
