The Beginning

As Data Engineers at the biggest online grocery company in India, one of our major challenges is to democratize data across the organization. But, when we began evaluating how well we were doing on this goal, we realized that frequent errors in our data pipelines had caused our business teams to lose confidence in data. As a result, they were never sure which data source is correct and apt to use for their analyses and had to consult the data platform team at every step. …

The only silver lining for us during COVID-19 was that we got a chance to optimize our resources in our run to cut costs — a long-pending activity.

One year ago, we were 2 people — trying to convince merchants in Delhi to trust us with their deliveries. Yesterday, we delivered 1250 orders and 200 Grofers pitched in to make it happen across Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai.

If you download the Grofers App, and check out a birthday wish before 8PM today, we will send Free Macarons to your doorstep within 90 minutes- any where in Delhi NCR. Last I checked, no one ever said no to free macarons.
