Job Summary

Who we are

Motorcycle taxis are immensely popular and serve as the lifeblood of many cities in Africa, but they are extremely unsafe and disorganized. SafeBoda is a Ugandan-based startup on a mission to make motorcycle taxis (bodas) more safe, affordable, and convenient across Sub-Saharan Africa—while providing a more meaningful and lucrative career for drivers. SafeBoda is growing fast with our mobile app on Android and iOS in terms of completed rides in Kampala, Uganda.

  6. Be a confident and persuasive communicator - outstanding interpersonal skills
  7. Be a SafeBoda super-user - love the product and be a passionate believer in our mission to modernise and professionalise the boda industry in Kampala.
