About the Role
At Gojek, engineering is central to everything we do: bringing our ideas to life and into the lives of our users. As a Senior Software Engineer for the Driver Platform team, you'll work closely with product managers, QA engineers, and designers to build world-class products and meet the technological needs of Gojek's driver-partners. With your efforts in designing automation scripts, testing automation frameworks, and overseeing defect fixes, you’ll ensure our driver-partners are given the platform and experience they deserve.
About the Team
Our Driver Partners are one of the key pillars of our business. From delivering food orders to transporting people and goods from one place to another, there is very little that our drivers can’t do. The Driver Platform team is an integral part of the entire Gojek ecosystem. We're responsible for building apps that are used by millions of driver-partners every day to earn their living. Our apps are operational across multiple countries in the Southeast Asian region, including Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam, and are growing at a rapid pace.
Our team consists of android, back-end, front-end, QA and data engineers based predominantly in India. Often working alongside the Product and Design teams, we work to meet the technological needs of our driver-partners via the systems and tools we build and provide for them. We’re divided into multiple sub-teams that focus on particular objectives for our driver-partners. Besides shipping a world-class transport app, we also work as a “platform team,” building features ourselves and enabling other teams in Gojek to contribute to our codebase. This gives us a unique chance to build excellent engineering processes and practices to support a large scale of developers working on the codebase.
One of the biggest obstacles our team has had to overcome was to ship releases faster and with top notch quality. After many weeks of research, collaboration, and trial and error, we figured out that the best way to tackle this issue is to automate as much as possible. Since then, we’ve focused a large amount of our efforts on prioritizing further automation in most of our projects, which has subsequently streamlined and enhanced the quality of our driver app.
We are a big team of home bakers, Netflix watchers, and K-pop fans who enjoy using technology to ease the lives of the people in our community. We work hard and play hard, and believe it or not, we actually enjoy each other’s company!
