A Decade in Motion - a Careem documentary

Over the past decade, we’ve simplified life for over 50 million customers, created earning opportunities for over 2.5 million Captains, supported our communities from Morocco to Pakistan, and helped spur the growth of the startup ecosystem that now forms such an important pillar of the region’s growth. Watch the first episode of our documentary to learn more about our story.

Careem leadership

Our leaders are committed to simplifying lives and building an inspiring organisation while impacting the region’s communities. Careem was started by Mudassir Sheikha and Magnus Olsson - both ex-management consultants looking to solve the problem of the region’s lack of reliable transportation. In 2013, Abdullah Elyas became Careem’s third co-founder, and together, over a decade, they led the company into 14 countries and hired over 12 thousand colleagues to bring their vision to life.

Join our journey

As we continue to deliver on our purpose, we are looking for ambitious people who share our values to join us on our journey. We want our future Careemers to learn and grow, create impact, and be part of an inspiring community while building the region’s every day Super App.
