About the Team
We are a team of 12 engineers who oversee Platform within the Mobility Marketplace group. We're split into 3 sub-teams specializing in backend, frontend, and ML. Our prime objectives include platformization, reliability concerns of marketplace systems, and creating a composable architecture where new features can be shipped for experimentation by businesses in a matter of days. We act as a central binding agent for the Pricing, Supply, and Matchmaking teams, and ensure that the overall architecture and infra is flexible, able to withstand failure, and is easily extensible and scalable.
Some of the key problem statements that our team works on are: platformization of the Mobility Marketplace as a first-class problem, understanding end-to-end use cases, challenging the status quo at all times by reviewing current engineering techniques and tools, and scouting for opportunities and fundamental engineering solutions that would bring agility & reliability to enable more business opportunities (just to name a few!).
Combating remote work has brought us even closer, with frequent catch-ups over tea and sharing ways we have been keeping ourselves sane. Along with our desire to utilize smart technology and innovative engineering strategies to make people’s lives easier, our team also bonds over our shared love for reading, gaming, and drinking lots of coffee. We work hard and play hard, and believe it or not, we actually enjoy each other’s company!
