If you're based in Southeast Asia, chances are you'd have heard of Grab, used Grab services, and even adopted "Grab" into your vocabulary: "Wait for me, I'm Grabbing down." But behind the everyday convenience, what else do you know about the Grab culture?
In this article, we'll reveal the top 3 things no one ever told you about Grab. We guarantee it's worth the 3-minute read!
1. Grab is not just a "local company"
Grab started local (in Malaysia to be exact) in 2012 by Harvard Business School classmates Anthony Tan and Tan Hooi Ling. Our founders had a simple dream - to make Southeast Asia a better and safer place for our communities. Fast forward 7 years later, we are now 6000+ Grabbers strong making this dream a reality via our everyday super app and services. Besides our Singapore HQ, we've now gone international - we operate Grab technology R&D centers in Seattle, Beijing, Bangalore, Ho Chi Minh City, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, and we're still growing! 🙌
2. Grab hires for heart
In everything we do, Grabbers aim to enable communities and elevate lives across Southeast Asia. If you are looking to join Grab, skills are not the be-all-end-all. Grabbers have to embody our four core values: Heart, Humility, Honour and Hunger. We are here to outserve our communities with their best interests at heart, we do the right things to get the right results, and we are hungry to do more. There is no room for ego here, please leave yours at the door 🔥
Besides our everyday work, Grabbers are also empowered to do more for our communities. We recently took part in the Hair for Hope donation drive to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer. What started as a ground-up approach culminated in over 111+ Grabbers and driver partners shaving their heads for a good cause. Even our CEO Anthony is on board! 🙈
3. Grab cares not just for the now, but also for the future
Grab is committed to driving Southeast Asia forward, and that includes developing future talents that will contribute to making SEA the next Silicon Valley 🌏 To do that, we are sponsoring hackathons for local communities, partnering with industry players to promote AI, and launching traineeship programs for local tech talents in Singapore.
