  • Full-time

Chief Technology Officer

Smove is the leading car sharing technology provider and operator in Asia. Based in Singapore, the company develops its hardware and software systems in house. The Singapore operation has 400+ cars which customers can book online to rent on an hourly basis.

Full control over the technology/ops stack results in the ability to be agile in producing solutions to real world challenges faced by our operations. There is a big focus on IoT, optimisation, algorithms and hardware/software R&D. Smove is testing other markets in the region where our platform can revolutionise the traditional car ownership and car rental models. The company has strategic partnerships with industry heavyweights such as Uber and local Government.

smove gives people without cars the ability to hire one when they need it, at short notice from their mobile phone in just 3-5 clicks. They like it because they can pick up the car from an ordinary parking location and drop it off wherever is convenient.

For the future, smove plans to offer to licence its technology to car fleet operators in urban locations outside Singapore, likely franchising a package to sell mobility as a service, giving operators the ability to create utility-like services for transportation of people & goods anywhere.


“Nothing happens in a start-up company until you do it”

Smove is a young company that thrives on a clear vision to make cities more liveable and to solve all pain points around vehicle ownership by developing a service model around mobility & transportation.

We are very ambitious, but also know that great things will take time and there are no shortcuts to building a lasting and sustainable business with a great culture.

If you are a thinker-doer & self-starter, bring a growth mindset and you keep challenging yourself by building something meaningful, please continue reading. If you are able to thrive in an environment without clear-cut processes and even better, able to create lean, agile & innovative processes yourself, this job is for you.
