About the role

Moving the world better – that’s the backbone of everything we do. At Ridecell, we pride ourselves on helping the largest fleets in the world digitally transform their business operations to achieve their goals, no matter how big or adventurous. Our fleet automation and mobility platform modernizes and monetizes fleets by combining real-time data insights with digital vehicle control that turns manual processes into automated workflows. Imagining a world where fleets fix and run themselves is no longer a concept – it’s a reality.

As Ridecell continues its mission to move the world better through digital transformation of fleets, we are looking for a savvy partner for our CEO & the Executive team. In this role you will assist the executive team in day to day functions of the company. From routine tasks and meetings that help our company, our people, our product, and our customers “level up” to strategic projects, you will work beside our CEO and Executive team  and help the company succeed.

You have multiple years of experience in one or more operational roles at a startup or high growth business unit. You recognize you have more to learn and prefer doing it in a boardroom over the classroom. You are not afraid of taking on significant responsibility but want to “level up” in certain areas before you fly solo leading a business unit lead or even a business. You care deeply about doing the right thing and about treating people well. Most importantly, you are humble and ready to do whatever it takes to help the company succeed - from tasks like running effective meetings or answering important emails to taking lead on strategic tasks that fit your operational strengths with leaders providing coaching where needed. Our CEO & Executive team is committed to providing active mentorship on specific areas where you want to improve and near complete transparency from him on any aspect of his thought process.

We would expect that this role would “graduate” into a leader at Ridecell or even elsewhere (or start their own company!), after a couple of  years..

The best fits will have some stellar  references ready to attest to all of the above.
