Heetch is a mobility app with a simple mission: we want people to enjoy going out.

Every night and every day, our drivers are doing their best to make their rides unforgettable and friendly!

We are focused on young people’s expectations and are competing within a fast-paced market.

The service was launched in Paris on September 2013 and has been growing since then, with thousands of rides every night in France, Belgium and Morocco.

With more than 1 million users in Europe, we are proud to be one of the fastest French growing startups!

Passenger @Heetch

The top priority of our user-centric team is the happiness of our passengers. From the moment they decide to join us until they enter our marketplace, passengers will be using our products. And our mission is to make sure they get the stellar experience they deserve.

The scope of the team includes passenger acquisition, to ensure that passengers can signup smoothly in a few seconds, and passenger account, to provide a wonderful lifecycle experience to our passengers and help them oversee their passenger account between 2 rides.

Given our business scope, our team is working side-by-side with other Product teams and internal partners (Operations and Marketing teams), allowing us to build features that will empower passengers with new ways to ride.
