About the Team
Our Data Science Platform team, a subsidiary of the Marketplace Data team, consists of 15 Machine Learning and Infrastructure Engineers based in Singapore. Our team is unique in its charter as an enabler of Data Science and Machine Learning systems at production scale within a hyper-growth deacorn. It's our job to build and oversee a Machine Learning platform to accelerate ML product development and simplify operations here at Gojek.
Some of our creations include open-source MLops technologies such as Feast (our feature store), Merlin (our model deployment platform), and Turing (our experimentation platform), and internal tools such as Clockwork. Our products are used in mission-critical parts of Gojek’s product offerings, such as dynamic pricing, driver allocation, food recommendations, and fraud prevention. We constantly work with machine learning practitioners to solve high-impact issues, and generalize the solution at a platform level to benefit the organization as a whole. 
We are a tight-knit group made up of exercise-buffs, amateur gamers, and (wannabe) whiskey connoisseurs. We work hard and play hard, and believe it or not, we actually enjoy each other’s company!
