Uber Plans To Launch In Bangladesh, Announces New Job Openings In Dhaka

Uber, the unicorn ride-hailing startup, is hiring in Dhaka! According to job posts published on the website of the company, the startups is hiring for three positions in Dhaka. The positions are Marketing Manager, Operations & Logistics Manager, and General Manager.

It is known that the 5 years old ride hailing startup has been looking for new growth opportunities but there was no formal announcement about its launch in Dhaka. However, this hiring notice definitely indicates that the startup is launching in Dhaka soon.

In Bangladesh, transportation is a huge market. Chalo, a Uber like service, and BDcabs.com launched last year. There are few other players in market like Toma and Runner but they are more of a taxicab service provider without an app to connect riders and drivers. There has been rumor of launch of few real ride hailing startups like Oikhali, Taxiwala for a while but none of those services launched yet. Now that Uber is about to launch, the game for ride hailing space is going to change entirely.
