About The Team

Our Transport team is a big family of 100+ members made up of engineers and product managers spread out across Jakarta, Bangalore, Singapore, and Vietnam. We run Southeast Asia’s leading and fastest-growing ride-hailing business and oversee all things related to our riders and driver-partners needs in daily transport and work daily to create solutions to these issues. It’s our job to ensure that our Transport services run seamlessly from the inside out.

Our team recently figured out that our existing third-party SDK for in-app live tracking of vehicles was not operating as smoothly as we had expected. So, guess what? We fixed this by building our own live tracking SDK – Navic. Right now, our team has been busy working on projects that aim to effectively grow our user base in the region (and beyond!).
