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 People Data Warehouse (PDW) team provides the data foundations used for real-world problem solving in pursuit of a high performing people culture at Grab. The work you do in the PDW team will have an amplifying impact on Grab as it improves thousands of Grabbers who work together to unlock the potential of Grab to drive hundreds of millions to economic empowerment and prosperity.

To build this data foundation, we extract and integrate a large variety of data sources and provide a secure, scalable, reliable and efficient platform for processing this data for insights.  

In spite of being a small team we manage the full life cycle of this data platform which includes requirement gathering and negotiations with data source providers, writing pipelines that ingest the data from source APIs, loading the data into a data warehouse followed by transforming that data. In addition, We also support integrations from various tools that are used by our downstream users who use PDW data for use cases such as business intelligence, analytics and machine learning. Finally, we also manage all of the operations including the infrastructure layer. 

Currently we maintain our data platform in Azure and as part of a consolidation effort, we are looking to migrate to AWS.
