A strong drive for results – you understand the difference between activity and impact; You prioritize and measure success based on the scale of the contribution you can make; You’re expected to be a big-picture thinker and strategic partner but you’re also willing to get your hands dirty and do whatever it takes to help your team deliver high-quality work against tight deadlines
An impressive aptitude for technology – you have demonstrated expertise in multiple technology areas (e.g. mobile dev, web dev, machine learning, operations, security, etc.) and the ability to quickly understand new technologies; Experience has given you the ability to foresee edge cases in technical specs and identify risks before they become too painful to address
About the TeamOur team folks are based primarily out of Bengaluru, Singapore, and Indonesia. Technical Program Management (TPM) is a new role within Gojek that will mature our engineering platform, play a critical role in establishing shared systems, fostering engineering excellence and a healthy engineering community across all of our products. TPMs are experienced technologists responsible for creating clarity, ensuring we’re working on the right things, driving execution and managing risks on critical projects that involve quite a bit of cross-group collaboration.While our team is based all over the region, we’re a tight-knit group who are bonded by two things: good technology and good food. For real – our weekly conversations range from everything security to the best food recipes to try at home. With WFH becoming more normalized, you best believe we’ve been sharing our favorite ways to prioritize a healthy work-life balance at home (Netflix marathons, anyone? ).
