"It's okay if you didn't know the skill beforehand, however it's important for you to be able to pick it up fast."

Specialising in cutting edge next-day deliveries for e-commerce, 3-year-old Ninja Van is possibly South-East Asia's fastest growing last mile logistics company. Head of HR, MrImran Bustamam shared that the logistics landscape has changed drastically over the years.

Two key factors contributed to their success: people and technology. Mr Imran emphasized the 3 key qualities that made applicants a "Ninja", namely: self-awareness, resilience and cognitive ability. Self-awareness was the ability to assess one's strengths and weaknesses, and to be able to work on the weaknesses identified. Grit was important for staying steadfast in the face of challenging situations, which was very common in the fast-paced and demanding logistics industry. Another character trait which was greatly valued was cognitive ability - the ability to pick up new skills quickly. "It's okay if you didn't know the skill beforehand, however it's important for you to be able to pick it up fast.", Mr Imran says.

Candidates with coding and data analysis skills were also highly sought after to support the data-driven company's cloud computing and virtualisation technology. A core attributor to Ninja Van's efficiency, data analytic skills and coding skills were imperative to the company's operations.
