Who We Are
At Government Digital Services, we endeavour to improve the lives of people in Singapore, one line of code at a time. We work closely with a range of government agencies to build high-quality, citizen-centric products.
Given the scale and lifespan of government products, we prioritise clean code and maintainable systems. We bring modern engineering practices such as CI / CD, TDD, DevOps, and XP into the work we do.
We continually prototype and iterate, in order to build the right products and deliver the best experience for citizens.
We believe in a flat team structure, where everyone takes strong ownership of the work. We practise Agile, and each product team is self-managing, cross-functional, and empowered to move quickly.
We thrive off each other’s positivity and energy, constantly challenging one another to improve our craft.
You’ll be working on TraceTogether, an app that mitigates the spread of COVID-19 through community-driven contact tracing.
TraceTogether is the first national deployment of a Bluetooth contact tracing app in the world, and has sparked many similar international initiatives.
Within Singapore, TraceTogether has 1.6 million downloads, and is used by the Ministry of Health as part of the contact tracing process.
You’ll be working on adding more features to TraceTogether, as well as improving existing functionality. You can find out more about TraceTogether at tracetogether.
