Global Market Launcher
Reporting to: Expansion Lead
Location: Dubai, UAE
Job Overview: We are seeking a market launch champion who plays a defining role in establishing Swvl’s footprint across multiple continents, countries, cities and verticals.
SWVL is the leading technology company in the mass transportation market. We
are a fast growing data-driven company which is disrupting the public transportation market in multiple continents making people’s lives better on a daily basis.
It started with an observation turning into a realization, too many cars on the streets, wasting our limited resources: time, space and money.
We had to question why we depend so much on our cars? and what are the consequent pains of moving around the city? Rush hours, traffic, terrible driving habits and unavailability of parking spots came rushing through our minds in addition to the pain of burning our wallets to avail on-demand services.
While an affordable decent public commuting solution is not accessible, we thought how can we improve people’s lives? And here Swvl was created, revolutionizing the transportation scene in Egypt and then in Kenya and Pakistan - by providing a technology-based alternative to public transportation, a smart solution that solves the transportation equation, we help our customers commute for less, with ease and comfort.
Swvl is a revolutionary idea that was born from passion, loyalty, and persistence to face all challenges on the table, Swvl is not just a means to facilitate commuting, but a hunger to strive for solutions, encourage the contribution of youth in innovation and inspire change.
