How GoJek Built A Decacorn With Less Than 300 Engineers! [Sidu Ponnappa]

It’s not everyday that you hear of companies reaching unicorn stage with just..70 engineers. And decacorn (i.e. valued at $10Bn+) with just 300 engineers!

At UnPluggd Conf 2019, GOJEK India’s head, Sidu Ponnappa shared the principles and philosophy that helped GOJEK scale 100X in a short span.

“A talk about the principles and philosophy that allowed GOJEK to build an engineering organization across 3 countries that delivered a Unicorn scale stack with less than 70 engineers and a Decacorn with less than 300.”

Sidu’s talk covered a lot of basic fundamentals of software engineering which you’d love to refresh from this talk.
