About Asia Innovations Group

Asia Innovations Group (AIG) is a global mobile social entertainment platform and the company behind the Uplive! mobile live-streaming service.

About the GIFTO team

AIG conducted one of the most successful Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) in Asia last year with our GIFTO token, and we are now in the midst of launching a digital asset gifting and trading platform based on blockchain technology. This platform will leverage the GIFTO token and our global Uplive! live-streaming audience of over 35 million app users.

About the Role: GIFTO Public Relations Lead

You’ll be evaluated by the business impact of our PR initiatives, including the impact on our user community and actual product usage. As a data-driven company, you’ll have unique insight into the real business value your work brings to the team.
