In case you missed it, Grab has inked a strategic partnership with Microsoft and will begin to use Microsoft Azure as its preferred cloud platform. Our long term vision is simple: to transform the delivery of our digital services with the help of Microsoft’s machine learning and other AI capabilities.
We believe this collaboration in technologies would allow us to create more seamless online-to-offline experiences for all our users.

Grab employs a microservice architecture that allows us to quickly scale our applications. However, the complexity of this architecture makes testing pretty difficult.
Read on to find out how our engineering team found an innovative solution around this problem with ‘Mockers’, a powerful tool that simulates a staging environment on developer local boxes, and how they intend to improve it in the future!

DRIVING SOUTHEAST ASIA FORWARD BY IMPROVING LIVES, SAFETY AND ACCESSIBILITY.
Grab is more than just the leading ride-hailing and mobile payments platform 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 the community, 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), last mile delivery (GrabExpress & GrabFood), bus & shuttle services (GrabCoach & GrabShuttle), cycling services (GrabCycle), an ideas incubator (GrabVentures), as well as a fintech platform (GrabPay, GrabRewards, GrabBenefits, Loans and Lending Services, Insurance). We are focused on pioneering new commuting and payment alternatives for drivers and passengers with an emphasis on speed, safety, and reliability. Currently we offer services in Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar; however, we also have R&D offices in Singapore, Seattle, Beijing, Bangalore, Jakarta, & Vietnam.

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:
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.
At Grab, we do what we love, and love what we do. Data-driven, passion-fueled – this is how we create cutting-edge awesomeness.

I have been working at Grab full-time (Less than a year)
1. Potential valuable stock awards
2. Leader in the ride hailing industry in South East Asia. And other growing areas in addition to ride hailing like Food, Express Delivery, Groceries and many more to come.
3. Unicorn startup with a huge market shares.
4. Work that I am doing is directly impacting our customers.
5. Above average base pay for the area.
6. Work-time is flexible, more task driven.
7. Despite being in US, we have CTO, CEO etc visiting quite often from Singapore.
1. Some projects are cross-sites (although not common) and those requires collaboration across time-zones.
2. Company grew too fast, getting things to market fast is important to grab market shares. Thereby accumulating tech debts.
3. Moving from startup to established company often require some amount of process. Need to define those process.
Advice to Management
1. Limit the amount of projects that is cross R&D centers.
I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Grab in July 2018.
I applied through a Grab post on LinkedIn. Since, I was not actively looking for a change, so I asked the recruiter to schedule an interview in 2 weeks time so that I can prepare for the interview. I had a telephonic discussion followed by three face to face technical rounds including a hiring manager round.
Overall, I am very satisfied with Grab's interview process. Scheduling was smooth and interviewers were on time. Interview was bit difficult but nothing unimaginable. One positive thing is that the hiring manager round went for one hour in which 45 minutes were spent in technical discussions on whiteboard, while only 15 minutes on goals and cultural fit questions.
