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

Come join the Consumer Experience (CX) Engineering team - we work on a diverse set of consumer experience problems for our users spanning across core experiences powering the UX navigation and transaction funnels, content and service discovery, user engagement, and the mobile application developer experience. We are on an exciting mission to build the best engagement and discovery experience for our users and win customer loyalty by serving the most important needs of customers’ daily lives with a seamless, personalized, and contextual experience that optimizes convenience and value for money

Get to Know the Role

You are a significant and autonomous contributor to your team who is trusted with designing, creating, delivering, and operating your team’s software systems in a consistently high-quality manner. When working on the systems within your team’s domain, you take into account the appropriate architectural patterns, code design, and infrastructure options, ensuring that you deliver a system that is secure, reliable, maintainable, extensible, and very well tested. Beyond delivery to the production system, engineers will be responsible for post-deployment monitoring as well. Senior engineers will also look for opportunities to improve processes within one’s own team.

In addition to being trusted to operate independently, you also maintain a good partnership with your technical and non-technical stakeholders for projects that you are involved in.
