  • Stay away. Bad upper management and terrible culture. I know someone who works there and regrets it.

    • I could feel that from the interview process.

  • It’s a good company started by McKinsey alum. Where are you based out of?

    • Heard good stuff about top mgmt, also Uber’s luxury equivalent in the Middle East. Where is the position?

    Why is that this company is without a VP of engineering and product for so long? That should be a red flag. There is no senior development or product leadership folks. They have sold to Uber before IPO and run by consultants. No tech DNA. Stay clear.

      This “red flag” company is the fastest growing company in the Middle East. They must be doing something right.

      This is a good opportunity for you to educate yourself. Go visit UAE, Saudi, Egypt, Jordan or Pakistan. See how widespread Careem’s service is. They are literally the Uber of those countries, and with no meaningful competition.

      Uber tried penetrating some of those markets and they couldn’t beat Careem, so they bought them.

      If you’re interested in Careem, suggest talking to a few people who work/have worked there beforehand. I used to work there and speak from experience.

  • I have heard great things about the CEO/founder from folks who have worked with him. Not sure if he is able to infuse that in his company's culture.

    • I have not heard great things about this company. I do not know about the CEO but heard management is a disaster and they lie to their teeth to get talent and go back on promises.

    Careem is the Arab Uber, they're quite successful, but pay cash only (no equity no nuffin).

      Maybe it’s not significant enough to be considered part of compensation?

    Love to hear more on this...we’ve hired some great talent in Berlin and Dubai. Founders are super cool and humble.

    • Great talent? Tell us more. Super cool founders = irrelevant.
