Senior Design Manager, CX

Fintech is a fast pace and exciting space and financial products are something our consumers use everyday. You need to be willing to learn and adjust accordingly, as there are a lot of moving parts. Financial products, as a whole, are highly technical, regulated and needs to be secure, so understanding constraints and being adaptable is key.

How we’re serving our driver-partners

Our driver-partners use the Grab app to provide transport services for ride hailing, food delivery and package delivery. As ‘gig economy’ (freelancer) workers, their financial services needs are not well met by more traditional products. GFG is providing more flexible and affordable lending, wealth and insurance products specifically designed to meet their needs.

How we’re serving our consumers

For our consumers, Grab is a part of their everyday life, whether it is getting to work, ordering dinner or booking a delivery. However, many consumers in Southeast Asia are underserved by banks and insurance companies. GFG is addressing this by using technology to deliver better access via digital payments, micro-insurance and innovative lending options such as ‘Buy Now Pay Later’.

How we’re serving our merchant-partners

With over 600,000 merchants who use our platform to access millions of customers through selling food online, using GrabPay to accept payments and using GrabExpress to facilitate last mile logistics, there’s plenty for GFG to focus on serving for our merchant-partners. Many of these small merchants are not able to access basic financial services, but GFG is leveraging the deep integration we have with these merchants to deliver better financial services needs.
