About the Team

Our Data Science team consists of over 20 Data Scientists. As Nasi Goreng is to the people of Indonesia, the Data Science team is to Gojek: providing the nourishment and power to sustain our business from the inside out. Our main responsibility is to build data products for ride-hailing, logistics, food delivery, and payments. How does one achieve this, you may ask? By leveraging on Machine Learning. From selecting the right driver to dispatch, to dynamically setting prices, to forecasting real-world events, to processing the hundreds of millions of orders per month across more than 20 products - all this is driven by Machine Learning. We are working on several projects now, including one about how we can strategically position our driver-partners to improve our customer experience. 

As a team, we’re concerned not only with the growth of the company, but each other’s personal and professional growths, too. With WFH becoming more commonplace, our team works to prioritize different ways of maintaining a healthy work-life balance more than ever before. Badminton and table tennis are current favorites, as is going on long hikes on the weekend. That said, we do fancy ourselves a good Netflix binge every now and then!
