Get to know our Team:
Grab’s Fulfilment-Dispatch Data Science team works on challenging and fascinating problems surrounding Grab’s allocation and batching capabilities - ensuring our passengers and eaters enjoy a high allocation and fulfilment rate.
A sample of problems we work on includes: intelligent allocation of drivers, grouping shared rides/orders, machine/deep learning-based predictions, online learning, on-demand routing and scheduling, and geospatial data mining.
We apply machine learning, geospatial and temporal data mining, simulation, forecasting, optimization, and many other advanced techniques on our huge datasets to push our business metrics to their bounds, directly and indirectly.
We foster a culture where we enjoy raising the bar constantly for ourselves and others, and that strongly supports the freedom to explore and innovate.
We are looking for candidates who are excited about working on challenging problems, applying their breadth and depth of specialised knowledge to design innovative solutions, and who push boundaries in seeking to continuously improve the growing suite of allocation and batching related services for our passengers, eaters, merchants and drivers.
Get to know the Role :
Find creative ways to solve passenger-driver allocation and batching problems optimally
Build complex and detailed simulations from ground up to dynamically model Grab’s operations
Drive product improvements and roll-out of new features
