Wheely is a Swiss-founded British luxury services company. We lean into both cultural identities: Swiss privacy and British prestige hospitality. Our product combines highly-trained chauffeurs, fine in-car experiences, and instant journey availability via a well-designed app.
Over the next 5-10 years we plan to build out and offer a full portfolio of luxury personal services, allowing clients to protect their time beyond just chauffeuring.
We are entering the world’s megacities one at a time—having started with London, Paris, Moscow, and Dubai. We are a Series B scale-up, and have raised $28 million to date.
Discretion is one of Wheely’s core values — where people travel, and who they travel with, is at their discretion. We respect their private life and their actions. Wheely has in the past refused to hand over requests to share passenger/journey data to governments, and we will continue to honour our commitment. This has led us to start developing technology in 2020 to put our clients’ movements beyond our own reach.
The Marketplace team is responsible for matching passenger requests with available chauffeurs. Their areas of responsibility are pricing, dispatching/matching protocols and incentives. Their success criteria are to maximize welfare (i.e. reliability, utilization) and to avoid a known failure mode of ride-hailing marketplaces known as the wild goose chase.
Scientists in the Marketplace
While there are existing capabilities, including an app with heuristic dispatch capabilities, that have aided with our success so far we now need to deepen our understanding of our marketplace and embed prediction & optimisation throughout it. We’re looking for a talented Applied Scientist with commercial experience to join and formalise our Marketplace optimisation problems, define and implement optimization algorithms, all while working with our product teams to scope optimisation-backed features that are critical to achieving our future ambitions.
This is a unique opportunity for talented, commercially and user oriented scientists to develop core marketplace capabilities in a mature and profitable company with a unique customer base and take on ride hailing.
Strong preference will be given to those who have 2+ years experience in a similar role at another ride hailing company.
