    • Write code that is clear, concise, performant, tested and easily understood by others
    • Communicate, collaborate and work effectively across cross-functional teams in a global environment
    • Ensure all code is thoroughly covered by automated tests and that all features meet quality checks before deployment
    • Proactively manage stakeholder communication related to deliverables, risks, changes and dependencies

What You Will Need

    • Hands on experience in designing, developing, testing and deploying large scale applications in any language or stack, prefer REST + JSON APIs

About The Team

At the heart of Gojek's businesses, we move things around. Whether that’s people, food, packages, fresh groceries, etc. Moving things around boils down to understanding the best route, understanding traffic, and understanding locations. The Cartography team is an internal team that surfaces mapping technologies needed by all internal product teams within Gojek and its subsidiaries. Examples of teams we provide for are GoRide, GoCar, GoFood, GoSend, GoShop, and GoPay.

Our Cartography Engineering team currently consists of talented product engineers based in Indonesia and Singapore. While our team is based all over the region, we are a tight-knit group who are bonded by two things: good technology and good bread 🙌. For real - our weekly conversations range from the latest breakthroughs in mobile technology to the best sourdough bread recipes out there (WFH has indeed made us into make-believe bread connoisseurs). But whether you like your bread with butter or olive oil, or stay as far away from it as possible (teach us how), we’d be stoked to have you join the fam!
