As a member of the tight-knit, fun-loving and diverse Proxy Research team, you will conduct corporate governance research on publicly-listed companies in Indonesia, Thailand, and other Southeast Asian countries and make draft recommendations to institutional investors on how they should vote at their portfolio companies' shareholder meetings.
