Job description

Marketplace team @ Heetch

The marketplace team focuses on finding the right triggers to balance the demand (passenger requests) and offer (driver availabilities) to generate growth while maintaining highly reliable service.

It requires a lot of data work, in order to formulate hypotheses and create models which will fit the different cities we operate in. In other words, we try to build scalable and smart things to make mobility easier, for both drivers and passengers.

Our team's goal is to make everything we can so anyone can Heetch anytime.
