    Scaling Like a Boss with Presto

    A year ago, the data volumes at Grab were much lower than the volume we currently use for data-driven analytics. We had a simple and robust infrastructure in place to gather, process and store data to be consumed by numerous downstream applications, while supporting the requirements for data science and analytics.

Grab – Why Work For Us?


About Grab

DRIVING SOUTHEAST ASIA FORWARD BY IMPROVING LIVES, SAFETY AND ACCESSIBILITY.

What We Do

Grab is more than just the leading ride-hailing 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.

JOIN US IN OUR MISSION TO REVOLUTIONIZE TRANSPORTATION AND MOBILE PAYMENTS

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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grab.

    Interview

    Got a initial phone interview with Grab. I gave them my availability a few hours later. I did not hear a response back for 4 days. They then set up an interview which I was unavailable for I updated my response and they got back to me in another 2 days with a new time. I declined the interview request because of lack of communication and promptness. Recruiters are supposed to be representing their company and if this is how the company operates I don't want to be involved.
