This position is based at Hailo’s downtown NYC offices and for immediate start. This position requires regular travel to our North American expansion cities (centered around the Eastern Seaboard) and occasional travel to our London HQ.
Join a fun, global team of top engineers, seasoned entrepreneurs, and taxi drivers for the adventure of a lifetime.
We're changing personal transportation, making people’s lives easier, and opening up a multi-billion dollar market in the process. We’ve built a massive following in London, Dublin, Toronto, Chicago and Boston, with both drivers and passengers thrilled to finally have a great experience with cabs. Join us as we expand - and help shape our global rollout plan.
Hailo is expanding rapidly throughout North America, with offices already in Toronto, Chicago, Boston, and New York, with DC and SF on the way.
We are looking for an intelligent, driven, and entrepreneurial individual to develop and own our new market research process, which has already been used for expansion into eight new markets, but will be evolved and perfected by you. This is a contract position with the opportunity for a salaried position for the exceptional candidate, based on your performance. The initial contract term will be no less than six months.
The challenge we face is that market data on the taxi and private hire market is sparse and unreliable. Primary research is required to obtain the level of detail we need in order to prepare for our market entries. This primary research will require a few weeks spent in each of the potential target markets (mostly in the Eastern US) to properly complete the research. Hailo’s New York team will actively support and guide you in this project and marshall Hailo’s global resources and knowledge when appropriate.
