NE is a team who is responsible for incentivising riders to accept some of our most difficult orders while balancing the overall spend budget.  This team sits in the overall Delivery team that is responsible for everything from Logistics, the applications the Riders use to accept and deliver orders, and the customer experience in tracking their order being delivered.

One of the more complicated areas is determining how much we pay our riders.  Too little and the fleet is too small and we cannot deliver great meals to our customers or too much and the company loses money - NE owns this problem. 

The team uses cutting edge ML techniques and builds the systems out that train those machines to find the right way to solve this problem.
