We are recruiting for a full-time Accountant to work with us remotely from Malaysia.

R3 is a uniquely global firm that drives greater marketing effectiveness and efficiency for our clients. Our company was founded in 2002 on three “Rs”: Return on Agencies, Return on Media, and Return on Investment. We see ourselves as the “McKinsey of Marketing.” Whereas a CEO has access to independent best practices from McKinsey, Bain or BCG, and a CFO has access to KPMG or EY, a CMO has no such independent partner. We aim to fill that gap. R3 is now 100 people strong, with offices in New York, London, Singapore, Shanghai, and Beijing.

Our Culture

One Team – Despite offices in multiple countries, R3 works under a single P&L model, which is unique in the marketing services industry and allows for far greater sharing and collaboration. We believe this is critical to our long-term success.

Add to the Culture, Not Change It – Although we work with the world’s largest companies, R3 is very different from a large agency or consultancy. We maintain more of a ‘family’ feel with extensive collaboration, partnership, and no politics. We take pride in what we have achieved and humility in how we can better ourselves. We welcome ideas and opinions from all levels, and it is this accessibility and open culture that we want to build the company on, regardless of geography. For us, it’s more important to have people who fit R3’s culture.

Act With Integrity – There is no company in the marketing sector that puts a higher value on integrity and honesty. We handle highly confidential information from marketers and agencies, including media cost benchmarks and sales information. The person who takes on this role must be beyond reproach.

Growth & Development – R3 believes in ongoing training, motivation, and incentives to keep and inspire than best possible consultants. Every week, we hold a Sharing Session across different teams. Every three months, we agree and align three things we want each individual to do for the following three months – and in turn, three things that R3 will do for that person.
