Driver Acquisition & Business Team @Heetch

We're a thoughtful and extremely talented full-stack product team. We're hiring for talent, not location, that is why you will find members of our group based remotely throughout Europe and Africa. Our mission is quite simple; be the welcoming and caring companion for all our drivers, empowering them to build a sustainable business from day one! Drivers use and rely on the products we build every single day to earn a living. A responsibility that we hold dear and do not take for granted.

The opportunity and challenge ahead for the Driver Acquisition & Business team is immense and will help facilitate the companies continued growth.This team is responsible for the entire business and account suite of products, which includes but is not limited to, Drivers application experience, Vehicles/fleet management, Business and Driver profile. Our multi-disciplined team allows us to work autonomously across the realms of our scope - Basically, this means that we own our roadmap entirely, and we empower each team member to contribute and influence how and what we work on.

Our values:

- Kindness: It's all about transparency. We discuss everything openly within the team. Our speak up culture is strong.
- Communicate Wisely: Our remote first team is fully distributed, and we work hard at that, but feel free to work from any of our offices.
- Free Mind: We celebrate the wins, but more importantly we're not afraid to fail, we always learn and go again.
- General Interest first: Thanks to team unity, no one is left behind.
- Make it Happen: Code quality? It's not software without tests.
