Operations Manager

Washington, DC
Washington DC Operations
Come do your best work.

Skip builds sustainable, shared electric vehicle networks for last mile-transportation.

We are backed by Y Combinator, Accel, Menlo Ventures, Initialized, A Capital and Paul Graham.

We’ve been passionately working on the future of last-mile transportation for nearly a decade. In 2011, our team co-founded Boosted and helped design the first portable electric vehicle to use modern EV motor and battery systems. 

We believe in working together with transportation departments and were the first permitted system of our kind in the country. Our DNA is rooted in solving problems by listening to and working with agencies, community groups and riders.

Skip is immediately hiring for roles across software and hardware engineering, product, government relations and ground operations as we rapidly expand across the country.

    • Synchronize activities between these teams and the Fleet Technicians to make sure the scooters are continually charged and in the best physical condition
    • Handle edge cases and reconcile issues across our management systems
    • Optimize positioning of scooters by leveraging a combination of local knowledge and data analytics
    • Track key metrics around our processes and report them to local and company management

    • Work a flexible schedule, including early mornings, late evenings, and occasional weekends

    • 2+ years experience in a top tier work environment (if you are burnt out in consulting, politics, finance, or law, we welcome you with open arms)
    • Bachelor's Degree
    • Strong desire to be a business leader, and prove yourself in a chaotic startup environment
    • Be able to handle several SaaS platforms simultaneously
    • Ability to flip between direct and logistical conversations with our ground teams, and highly analytical deep dives with our engineering team
    • Obsession with 'the follow-through' -- being relentless about getting things done right
    • Unquestioned work ethic
    • Passion in what we're doing to rapidly advance the future of mobility

What we're offering
