In the last 36 months, the startup’s total order volumes has grown a devilish 6666x and diversified into 18 verticals. The company runs the equivalent of three Indian unicorns rolled into one. GO-FOOD alone does more orders in Indonesia than all Indian food tech startups combined. 3 years since the mobile app launched, GO-JEK does more rides than India’s largest taxi-sharing service.

A total of 1,000,000 drivers collectively cover an average distance of 7 million kilometers each day, making GO-JEK Indonesia’s de facto transportation partner. GO-JEK is a verb. GO-JEK is a way of life. It is quite simply the operating system of Indonesia. 200 engineers spread across Jakarta, Singapore and India make software decisions that impacts about 260 million people in the country.

The tech team comprises of developers, data scientists, designers and product managers who work on product innovation, mining data and crafting consumer experiences. The average age of the team is 29 and it runs one of the largest jruby, Java and go clusters in Asia.
