Other Information

This is a global role with responsibilities and travel required across Hailo’s network, especially North America and Europe. The role requires significant on-site presence at our London office for at least six months, but ultimately may be based at other Hailo locations especially NYC. Someone who enjoys travelling and interacting with people in diverse cultures will be a great fit.

About Hailo

Hailo is the evolution of the hail - a free smartphone app where people are just two taps away from a licensed taxi, and cabbies get more passengers when they want them.

A Hailo hail is accepted around the world every five seconds from Hailo’s global network of 25,000 drivers and hundreds of thousands of passengers. Launched in November 2011, Hailo is available in London, Dublin, Toronto, Chicago and Boston - and coming next to New York, Tokyo, Washington DC, Madrid and Barcelona.

Founded by three taxi drivers and three internet entrepreneurs, Hailo is backed by some of the best names in VC.
