  • Solid knowledge of Data Science and Machine Learning fundamentals, with proven experience in formulating Data Science solutions for business problems

  • Experience in taking Data Science models to production
  • Prior experience (research or industry) in the geospatial and mapping domain is a plus
About the Team
Our Cartography team, based in Singapore and Jakarta, is a platform team that surfaces mapping technologies needed by all internal product teams and business units within Gojek. In simpler terms, we make maps fit for our users' needs and provide geospatial insights across the company. At the heart of Gojek’s businesses, we move things around - whether that’s people, food, packages, or fresh groceries. This boils down to knowing the best routes, predicting traffic patterns, and knowing our region like the back of our hand.
We continuously build data products for ETA prediction, mapping error detection, map-matching, location search and ranking, and reverse geocoding. One of our most successful implementations was the generation of new pickup points via unsupervised learning and NLP.  We've since deployed the pickup points generation and ETA prediction models in our main markets, and have our sights set on scaling these features to the wider region and beyond.
We’re a tight-knit, high-functioning team who genuinely love what we do, as we can see the results of our efforts play out in our users' every day lives. When we aren’t working, you’d probably find us with our noses in books, or our eyes glued to the TV screen watching the latest Korean dramas. We also prioritize self-care and wellness, and are equally concerned with each others’ personal and professional developments.
