Senior Growth Engineer

Jakarta, Indonesia
HappyFresh Group is the number one online grocery company in Southeast Asia. With headquarters in Jakarta, we have expanded to eight cities in three countries and now operate in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. Every day, our team delivers the freshest, highest quality groceries to thousands of customers in Southeast Asia's major cities.

We know very well that when you create a product for everyone, you have to involve everyone. That is why at HappyFresh, we value inclusion over elitism, skills over credentials. We give talented people opportunities to join and grow with us regardless of their backgrounds. As long as you can make a difference, we welcome you to join a team that shapes the future while having fun.

The Growth Engineering team is dedicated to apply product, engineering, and data to keep Happy Fresh grows as fast as possible. To effectively do so, we build features, infrastructure, and experiments to maximize growth.

Our work ranges from iterating on our core user experience across our entire stack, to create recommendation and personalization systems. We build models to better predict how our customers behave over the long run in order to grow sustainably and profitably. Finally, we are responsible for the infrastructure that powers our growth, including our experimentation framework and automated marketing systems.

You will build software to help drive double-digit growth month-over-month. How you do that is up to you and your team - as long as you can measure and back your results up. Your work ranges from backend infrastructure like extending our experimentation platform, owning customer-facing features like personalization systems end-to-end, to optimizing our endpoint load time to help move conversion.

We focus on building quantifiably high impact features through prototyping and experimentation. It is your responsibility to ensure that these features and systems are maintainable, scalable, and can be built into more sophisticated solutions, by you, or by relevant teams.
