Senior Principal Engineer & Architect, Transport and Core Technology
Seattle/Bellevue, WA, USA
As Senior Principal Engineer and Architect you will drive the architecture, design, and execution of Grab’s Transport and Core Technology areas. You will spend time understanding and improving the architecture of our core systems, making sure they meet the world-class security, quick feature velocity, massive business scaling, and mission-critical stability requirements. You will be responsible for the architecture of Grab’s core systems, and also for ensuring high quality in the private and public APIs Grab offers to customers and partners. You will drive (or develop and then drive) specific goals and metrics around scalability and availability, which will be tracked with senior leadership including the Group CTO and CEO directly; developing the appropriate mechanism to track these goals would be your responsibility. You will create and drive consensus across the entire Engineering and Product organizations, with an eye to delighting our customers with the correct mix of operational excellence, features, and next generation research and innovation. You will help influence organizational development to make sure we are structured to deliver on these goals.
The ideal candidate will also perform regular hands-on project work, delivering specific technology as a project lead, as a way to be directly in touch with the engineering culture and practices of the Transport and Core Technology org. These projects should have broad impact and drive positive outcomes for Grab’s architecture, availability, and scalability.
You will help with other technical leadership activities where needed in order to make the company more fulfilling to its employees. These include improving the interview process (especially for senior/principal-level engineers), improving our engineering excellence, educating our engineers on company leadership principles and how to apply them in their work, meeting with key customers and vendors, giving internal and external presentations, and external blogging, among other things.
