About the Team
Our Data Science team consists of over 20 Data Scientists.
As Chicken Rice is to the people of Singapore, the Data Science team is to Gojek: providing the nourishment and power to sustain our business from the inside out. Our main responsibility is to build data products for ride-hailing, logistics, food delivery, and payments. How does one achieve this, you may ask? By leveraging on Machine Learning. From selecting the right driver to dispatch, to dynamically setting prices, to forecasting real-world events, to processing the hundreds of millions of orders per month across more than 20 products - all this is driven by Machine Learning. We are working on several projects now, including one about how we can strategically position our driver-partners to improve our customer experience.
As a team, we’re concerned not only with the growth of the company, but each other’s personal and professional growths, too. Along with keeping fit (via badminton and table tennis), our team bonds over our shared love of hiking (Yes, in Singapore!). With WFH becoming more normalised, you best believe we’ve been sharing our favorite ways to prioritise a healthy work-life balance at home (Netflix, anyone?).
