Past and future
Heetch started back in 2013 on the parking lots of Parisian nightclubs, where founders Teddy and Mathieu would showcase their nocturnal ride-sharing service to young customers who’d missed the last train. One court case* and two fundraisings later, our professional 24/24 ride-hailing app covers more than ten countries and is growing very fast, particularly in French-speaking Africa.
We aim to create healthy and culturally relevant markets wherever we go, which implies guaranteeing a fair income to drivers and affordable prices to passengers… while taking care of our employees. This indisputable challenge unites the teams and keeps us going everyday!
*Google it, it’s an epic story!
Heetch, the only driver-friendly app in France
Raised, profitability is next!
Employees in 2023
Making mobility accessible to all is far from easy, but it’s been our motto since the very beginning. We face many challenges: payment by cash, pricing that matches both the drivers’ and the passengers’ expectations… our app is constantly evolving to match our users’ needs.
In our opinion, no-one should be left behind: for many, Heetch represents a true alternative to the lack of public transportation (remote parisian suburbs, rapidly urbanizing African cities…)
Wherever we go, the same vision applies: our users choose us for our prices, then love us for our ethics!
We are convinced that it’s possible to fulfill your ambition while working in a healthy and caring environment and that’s why we make sure to help you balance your professional and personal lives : flexibility is the key, when you feel trusted, you can accomplish anything.
We encourage self-development through career paths, rituals and trainings.
Transparency is our motto : from our app’s algorithms to our revenues. Every voice is welcome : to us, one open dialogue is worth a thousand polite speeches
DOs: Respect others and their opinion, no matter who they are. Always assume good intentions, especially in written communication.
DON’Ts: Saying ‘yes’ to everything, being ‘too nice’. Gossiping.
MAKE IT HAPPEN
DOs: Be efficient, driven and autonomous rather than spotless. Make decisions, admit when you’re wrong and move on. Being focused and trustworthy.
DON’Ts: make it happen at all cost. ‘Bulldozer’ through your days.
PLAY FOR THE TEAM
DOs: Put the company’s interests first, not your own. Speak up when necessary, regardless of your self-interest. Think of the future and document what you do.
DON’Ts: Sacrifice your personal goals and well-being. Protect your team at all costs against the ‘greater good’.
DOs: Invent solutions for the unsolvable. Be yourself! Seek knowledge and new experiences.
DON’Ts: Staying in your own world or overthinking simple things. Creating conflicts, being overly critical.
Commitments and CSR
No need to pretend we’re perfect (no business is), we’d rather be 100% honest.
Our gender equality index is at 84/100 and we’re convinced that it can be better ! Our strategy ? A guide about discrimination and regular trainings to fight cognitive biases.
Any and every one of our employees is encouraged to participate in social actions : organize collections, blood donation, sustainable actions : choose yours !
We’re proud to help make mobility more accessible wherever we go !
