Grab – Why Work For Us?

About Grab


What We Do

Grab is more than just the leading ride-hailing and digital payments app in Southeast Asia.

We use data and technology to improve everything from transportation to payments across a region of more than 620 million people. Working with governments, drivers, passengers, and charities, we aim to unlock the true potential of the region by solving problems that hinder progress.

Grab began as a taxi-hailing app in 2012, but has extended its product platform to include private car services (GrabCar & GrabShare), motorcycle taxis (GrabBike), social carpooling (GrabHitch) and last mile delivery (GrabExpress). We are focused on pioneering new commuting alternatives for drivers and passengers with an emphasis on speed, safety, and reliability. Currently we offer services in 87 cities across Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Myanmar; however, we also have R&D offices in Seattle, Beijing, Jakarta, & Vietnam.

If you share our vision of driving South East Asia forward, apply to join our team today.

What We Believe In

Grab’s vision is to “Drive Southeast Asia Forward” by solving real world transport and mobile payments problems that hinder progress.

We aim to do this by delivering on three missions:

  1. Creating the safest transportation platform
    Safety is paramount to us. We invest heavily in safety training for drivers, offline driver screenings, in-app safety features like number masking, personal accident insurance coverage, and safety education and partnerships with the government. Our belief is that an app-based transportation platform with the right investment can become the safest form of transportation in Southeast Asia.
  2. Making transportation accessible to all
    Our goal is to make transportation accessible at all times, all locations and at all price points. We believe that door-to-door transportation should be a right for every Southeast Asian, regardless of income, special needs, age or location.
  3. Improving the lives of our partners
    We believe that a sustainable business is not just one that turns a profit, but also one that improves the lives of the people it touches – passengers, drivers, employees, governments and broader society.


When you join Grab, we promise you that: 

1) You’ll impact our business & beyond

We strive to outserve our customers, partners, communities and the region.  Grab started off as a for-profit social enterprise to tackle challenges affecting the safety of women and children, and we haven’t stopped there. 

2) You’ll experience hyper-growth and overcome challenges every day

We never stop finding new ways to disrupt industries and even ourselves.  We collaborate with some of the brightest minds and hardest workers to overcome the unique challenges found across the region.  Currently, we are pioneering efforts across transportation, payments, logistics, mapping and more!

3) You’ll work with a team with one heart beat

When Grab first started everyone had to hustle.  Now that we are growing we strive to keep this going.  When one team or employee is having trouble, there is never any shortage of help to come their way.  At Grab we don’t believe in silos, but we do believe in each other.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I was contacted by Grab's internal HR about a position which was lower than my pay grade. It was later apparently filled and HR asked if I would like to consider another similar position. Decided to go in with an open mind to find out more about the company. Before the meeting, I was asked to do a strategy paper for the company to be presented at the meeting. I expressed my concerns to HR that sensible advice cannot be baseless given that I had not spoken to anyone at that point, and substantial effort needs to be put into such a presentation. HR said this was what they required. Needless to say, I didn't give away too much information.

    Let's just say that I wasn't impressed with the team when I met them. One of the roles stated in the job description was not even something they were planning to do in the near term nor had any internal expertise in.
