ABOUT CAREEM (UBER):
Data Scientist (Bayesian) — Experimentation Platform
At Careem, our mission is to simplify and improve the lives of people and create an awesome organization that inspires. With this vast mission statement, we started by improving transportation and delivery in the region, and now we are expanding into Payment and we’re launching a super-app, hosting multiple Careem and 3rd-party apps, to further simplify and improve people’s everyday life.
We built the first multi-billion dollar tech startup in the MENAP region. The first line of code was written in Pakistan and we built on it further in Dubai and Berlin. We operate in 100+ cities across 11 countries. We joined Uber officially in early 2020. We grew and attracted top global talent and grew a culture for bold ambitions, shooting for the moon, innovation with tight constraints, and being Careem/gracious.
The Careem AI team’s mission is to drive competitive value from data at scale through building AI models to optimize user experiences, decision making, operational efficiencies, and leading the region’s AI ecosystem. You will be working with the top data science talent of the region, to solve the region’s day to day problems, through state-of-the-art, well-integrated, democratized experimentation and AI, across our different products and platforms.
About United Software Solutions
United Software builds and operates dedicated teams for businesses. Our mission is to connect mature businesses and dynamic startups with unique local talents for the synergy magic to happen.
Three ‘T’s serve as our values, those are True, Trust, Transparency. We are honest and transparent with our partners and they trust us.
Since our founders come from large IT outsourcing companies, they specifically decided to organize their own business in a different way: “Build your future, don’t outsource it”.
The teams we build for our clients work independently on the project, without any excessive bureaucracy. We organize the optimal working conditions: flexible work schedule, different activities and team building, medical insurance, premium sport & fitness, 24 days of paid vacation, and of course a cozy kitchen with different snacks, sweets, and drinks.
We believe in happiness in the workplace and make it real.
