As Gojek scales up and places more emphasis on AI/ML solutions as product differentiators for its millions of customers, having effective tools and standards across the organization becomes more important. We aim to democratize AI/ML capability across the organization and enable data scientists to deliver and iterate rapidly and reliably.

  • Continue to stay abreast of the latest technologies in Machine Learning and Big Data space to inform the right choice between build vs buy. Suggest new technologies and best practices to trial
