No other Chinese companies invest such great effort into the hiring programs like JD. These programs not only give you great exposure to JD’s different departments, but also help you establish strong relationship with colleagues and executives. It’s very impressive that JD is willing to give you the ownership and responsibilities, so that you can turn your ideas into reality and learn from practice. The passionate atmosphere at JD was noticeable at all levels and in every delivery station I went. People smiled; people were helpful, upbeat and genuine. I truly appreciate all that I have learned from the fabulous people I've crossed paths with here.

JD.com is the largest B2C direct sales e-commerce platform in China and has been growing at an incredible speed year over year, resulting in tons of useful data and excellent bid data infrastructure. Coupled with the strategic partnership with Tencent, it’s an exciting time to focus on activating those data and bringing digital marketing technology innovations into the planning and operation of marketing strategies. The IMT rotation program is well designed to provide you with the platform and opportunities to get yourself familiar with all business units and business/tech leaders within JD Group. From there, you can uncover potential areas to focus on.
Kaisi Yale MBA
I gave up a career in investment banking to join the JD IMT Program because it promised me a platform to work in ambiguity and be challenged on a daily basis. From day one, there is tremendous belief by the organization that we are capable of achieving anything, yet there is no real manual as to how. Thus we are thrusted into action immediately and given every opportunity to experiment and make crucial decisions, then having to live with our judgments. In short, there is no better way to challenge one’s mental toughness and leadership abilities than the IMT Program. So if you are looking to grow and expand your horizon at a stunning pace, and experience the highs and lows of success and failure, then this is the place for you!
