About Snapp

Snapp is the pioneer provider of ride-hailing mobile solutions in Iran that connects smartphone owners in need of a ride to Snapp drivers who use their private cars to offer transportation services. We are ambitious, passionate, engaged, and excited about pushing the boundaries of the transportation industry to new frontiers and being the first choice for every user in Iran.

About the Team

On the surface, Snapp's ride-hailing technology may seem simple: a user requests a ride from the app, and a driver arrives to take them to their destination. However, behind the scenes, a robust infrastructure consisting of hundreds of services and terabytes of data supports every trip on the platform. At the heart of this infrastructure, both map data and services enable the most basic features that power our business. In our early days, we relied on third-party services like Google Maps, but these services lacked the customizations and localizations required for our business. Our map engineers are a group of individuals who directly impact the daily lives of over a million users in Iran.

About the Role

 As an EM, you will lead our Map Core, Address, and Platform teams, which provide services to the entire Snapp Group consisting of more than eight businesses. Your primary focus will be on people management and high-level processes and orchestration, ensuring the successful delivery of projects and the efficient operation of the teams.

To excel in this role, you should have a strong background in people management, technical leadership, and cross-team collaboration. You will work closely with stakeholders, product managers, and engineers to drive the development and maintenance of our core, address, and platform services. As a leader, you will mentor and guide junior team members, foster a culture of innovation and collaboration, and be responsible for achieving impactful results.
