I am a back end engineer, and I chose to be with Careem because I support their mission. Careem is a place where engineers are inspired. We spend our time reflecting on technologies and existing solutions, exchanging points of view, and elaborating the pros and cons in order to get the best of the architecture and processes we use. That’s a typical day at Careem. Your experience and your vision are highly valued here. With people coming from more than 50 different countries, Careem managed to create a very powerful platform where we can create effective and scalable solutions, and change people’s lives for the better.

My time with Careem Engineering is the highlight of both my career and my life. Ground transportation was one of the biggest problems in the region, and back in 2012 we set out to solve it with technology. During the first year, we laid down the technology foundations of what Careem is today. As we rolled out feature after feature in the following years, and as our team grew from two to over 200, we witnessed our code change the people’s way of living. This has been a heart-warming and exhilarating experience for me, and this is what drives my passion every day I go to work.
