About the Team:

DevX: what do we do?
We are the mobile platform team at Gojek. We build small tools and standardize processes, SDKs so as product engineers can focus on Product Features. The team acts as a Center of Excellence for app performance, Mobile Security along with improving the mobile engineer's developer experience and productivity (working in teams like GoRide, GoFood, GoPay, etc).

Core areas that we focus on:

Build: We are a super app consisting of 22 products, each big enough to be a startup on its own. Apart from this, we have equally feature-rich driver and merchant apps. This pod is on a mission to evaluate build systems and migrate to it to get granular control on how we build our apps and the time required for the same. Reliability of CI infra for mobile apps and automated PR feedback are also the responsibilities of this team.

Framework: This team works on creating common frameworks, as in NetworkSDK, Gojek’s in-house Analytics and configuration SDKs, etc, which internal products use to build upon and code generators for boilerplates. The team also takes care of making sure, Gojek app performance is top-notch and industry-leading!
