SafeBoda > Jobs

Who we are

Motorcycle taxis are immensely popular and serve as the lifeblood of many cities in Africa, but they are extremely
unsafe and disorganized. SafeBoda is a Ugandan-based startup on a mission to make motorcycle taxis (bodas) more safe, affordable, and convenient across Sub-Saharan Africa—while providing a more meaningful and lucrative career for drivers.

SafeBoda is well off to the races: we have nailed the driver-side model with 1000+ drivers and we are looking to better monetize our ~20,000 trips in Kampala per day. We now are at over 15% week-on-week growth on our mobile app in terms of completed rides.
