* DevOps Engineer

At Hailo, we understand that life is busy enough without the little, everyday frictions getting in the way. Our immediate task is to make getting around hassle-free for everyone.

For passengers, that means a beautifully slick smartphone app where you hail cabs you can’t see, watch them arrive live, payment is effortless and receipts just appear in your inbox. It’s magic.
