Our Culture


dahmakan is one of the fastest growing food tech startups in Southeast Asia. We make food delivery an everyday choice by delivering chef-made meals below restaurant prices at the push of a button. 

Funded by Y Combinator and leading tech investors from Silicon Valley, Europe and Asia, we’re conquering a trillion dollar market in the most exciting region of the world.

We combine centralised, large-scale production with deep customer data, machine learning and the most talented chefs in the industry to create an award-winning food delivery experience. Applying artificial intelligence to last mile delivery gives us the lowest delivery costs in the industry.


We don't believe in 9-to-5, meetings about meetings and casual Fridays (it's pretty casual everyday). We want you to push boundaries, change the game and create impact everyday by doing things that matter. Get your hands dirty from building scalable operations, growth hacking, community building, business development, product improvement, customer care to cooking(?), no two days are ever the same and we like it that way. If you're smart, hardworking and anyone has ever called you crazy, then we want you to become part of the family.
