About the Role
Our GoPay Data Science team is a group of over 15 team members based across Singapore, India and Indonesia. Our role is to build critical ML components/models into the engineering systems to ensure GoPay remains a safe, trusted, and seamless way to conduct payments in Southeast Asia and beyond. Our team members come from varied backgrounds, and bring with them a wide set of skills and expertise (mathematics, statistics, machine learning, structured learning, among others) which we utilize to solve the complex business problems we're presented.
