About the Team
Our Risk/Fraud team consists of a lean group of data scientists stationed across Jakarta, Bangalore, Singapore and Bangkok. The safety of Gojek’s platform is our top priority; our efforts impact the user experience and financials, among many other things. We play a critical role in ensuring the most credible and reliable tech platform for our users, driver partners, and merchant partners in our ecosystem. Partnering closely with the Risk department, subject matter experts, product managers, and engineers, we work to deliver bold solutions to reduce fraud and abuse on the platform.
We’re a high-performing, tight-knit team who are committed to the safety and growth of the company, as well as each other’s personal growths and wellbeing. Pre-Covid, factions of our team would enjoy catching up over a round of drinks after work. However, with WFH becoming more normalized, we've been sharing our favorite ways to prioritize a healthy work-life balance at home. This includes ample “fun” Zoom calls where we discuss our latest tech-related findings we find interesting.
