About the Team

Our UX Engineering team is a part of the Engineering platforms group at Gojek. Our team is based out of Bangalore and collaborates with design teams spread across India and Indonesia. We're a small team of 15 passionate engineers who are focused on eliminating the gap between the designed user experience and the developed user experience in all of Gojek’s applications. We build robust frameworks, libraries, and tools to make implementing Gojek design easy, efficient, and faster to iterate on.

The Gojek app has been downloaded almost 170 million times and our underlying design systems powers the interfaces that helped get us here. In the future, we plan to further expand our design system to cover even more user focused use cases, enhance accessibility, and increase automation to reduce the gap between the design that's envisioned and the design that's shipped.

We are a lean team of talented and motivated people, and though we work hard, we do know how to play hard, too. We have weekly team catch-ups (via Counterstrike and Call of Duty, most favorably), and despite the WFH set up recently, we take our opportunities to catch up for a round of drinks when it’s safe to do so. We hope you'll join us on this journey!
