Lime is founded on the simple idea that all communities deserve access to smart, affordable mobility.
We aim to reduce dependence on personal automobiles for short distance transportation & leave future generations with a cleaner, healthier planet. Using our mobile app, consumers can locate, unlock & ride one of thousands of nearby smart scooters, bikes or transit vehicles. When they're done, they can simply park the vehicle, lock it, & walk away. Traffic, rerouting, & late arrivals are a thing of the past.
Lime was born in early 2017, when co-founders Brad Bao & Toby Sun identified a gap in the way people travel short distances. Since then, no company has grown as fast as we have. We've deployed thousands of bikes & scooters in 100+ cities worldwide. Since our initial product launch in June of 2017, over 100 million trips have been taken with Lime bikes & scooters, & our riders take 3 million more every week.
Even given our spectacular growth, we don't just see ourselves as a transit company. The insights that we can offer cities - about travel patterns, local economies, & consumer behavior - will be the foundation on which they build in the decades to come.
Lime's executive team has grown rapidly over the past year, to the extent that it now includes 10+ people covering finance, operations, engineering & product, people, marketing, legal & communications, policy & government relations, & trust & safety. We need someone to tackle three primary tasks:
1) serving as a data-driven strategic advisor & counsel to the entire leadership team regarding goals & metrics;
2) tracking down key cross-departmental initiatives & driving the team for results; and
3) creating & maintaining strong cross-departmental communication practices that cover a 600-person team in 25 countries.
This role will report directly to Brad Bao, our CEO. The Chief of Staff will also serve as the anchor for future hiring within Brad's office (with the potential to later manage a team), which presently includes an EA & a program manager who address day-to-day tasks. This person will also work closely across all other leaders within Lime's executive team, with a particular focus on our corporate development & operations leaders (David Richter, our CBO; Joe Kraus, our COO/president; & Wayne Ting, our global head of operations).
