Life at  Grab

At Grab, every Grabber is guided by The Grab Way, which spells out our mission, how we believe we can achieve it, and our operating principles - the 4Hs: Heart, Hunger, Honour and Humility. These principles guide and help us make decisions as we work to create economic empowerment for the people of Southeast Asia.

Get to Know the Team

The Data Science (Geo Vision) team at Grab focuses on improving the maps and building map-based intelligence such as localization, routing, travel time estimation, and traffic forecasting, that assist various Grab services like transportation, logistics, and pricing. We extensively use Computer Vision, NLP, Information Retrieval, and Text Mining along with conventional machine learning methods on a variety of signals including images, videos, text, sensor readings, GPS probes, etc to understand our locations and road networks. We also support the development of innovative, highly scalable, models through deep research and advanced analysis so that we make our products intelligent and delight our customers. We foster a culture where we enjoy raising the bar constantly for ourselves and others, and that strongly supports the freedom to explore and innovate.

Get to Know the Role

We are looking for a senior data scientist to help automate the process of map creation using data science techniques. We believe a successful candidate has very good modern computer vision skills and strong deep learning expertise, but if you believe you have what it takes then we’d love to hear from you either way. This role is required because of the very fast pace of change in the SE-Asia environment impacting deeply the maps. In return, you will get an opportunity to grow in a very challenging environment requiring innovation and creativity.
