About the Team

The office of the CIO leads the company's information technology strategy and implementation. All internal and enterprise systems are maintained and implemented by the CIO’s team; they look after a variety of systems, including (but, not limited to): finance, people services, productivity, operations, internal security login, authentication, account authorization, account audits, and email. This office also leads all IT asset procurement, budgeting, and implementing equipment policies.

Under the office of the CIO, the IT Enterprise Systems team governs, manages, and aids GoTo’s Enterprise applications and information globally. The Enterprise Data team, part of the IT Enterprise Systems Team (which this role will be situated within), is a new team being built. Based in Jakarta, Indonesia, this team will be the single source of truth for the GoTo Enterprise, catering to all corporate functions of GoTo and its operating units. This team will work alongside the IT Infrastructure and IT Information team. This is an exciting time to join our squad as we’re prepared to expand rapidly in 2023 by tapping into newly-emerged offerings within the GoTo group ecosystem and beyond.

Our roles range from carrying out project implementations to supporting users globally. We’re part of the team that oversees all internal enterprise systems that are maintained and implemented by the CIO’s team, and work together to govern, troubleshoot, and improve them. It’s our job to ensure that GoTo Enterprise applications run seamlessly. We're a highly dynamic team, so our emphasis on learning and working on new things (i.e. going the extra mile) is our key to success.

We are a tight-knit group that is bonded by two things: supporting GoTo's capability as a global company, and supporting each other as a family. For real - our weekly conversations range from the latest automation breakthroughs to sharing our favorite ways to stay healthy and happy as we get through this pandemic together. We don't mind working extra hours if need be (sometimes, things come unexpectedly) because we're encouraged by seeing our efforts come to fruition and benefit our users around the globe.
