Grab to double Singapore staff to 3,000
Grab plans to double the number of staff in Singapore to 3,000 next year.
This will coincide with its shift into its new headquarters, located in the one-north business park.
At present, Grab employs 1,500 people in Singapore. These employees are split between various offices in the city, including at Guoco Tower and Cecil Street.
“Singapore is our strategic base from which we have grown from a ride-hailing service provider to the leading super app in Southeast Asia. Our new headquarters represents our long-term commitment to Singapore and the region; the new space will cater to our evolving business demands as we continue to innovate and use technology to meet our customers’ daily needs, groom more tech talents, and nurture more tech startups for Southeast Asia,” said Lim Kell Jay, Country Head of Grab Singapore.
“We’re here for seven years, and we want to be here — we must be here — for at least another 70 more years,” said Grab’s CEO and co-founder, Anthony Tan.
During the groundbreaking ceremony for the new headquarters, expected to cost $181 million, Tan added that the company will be hiring another 1,000 people globally for technology roles.
The company has 6,000 employees worldwide, not counting its drivers.
