    [content] => <p>Ridecell (<a href="http://www.ridecell.com)">www.ridecell.com)</a> is powering next generation of ridesharing, carsharing and autonomous new mobility services. As the world shifts to a mobility on-demand model and new companies rush to enter as service providers, Ridecell is ready to support these initiatives. Already 20 customers, including BMW, Renault, Karma and AAA use our proven platform to launch, operate, and scale their new mobility services. </p>
<p>With a team of over 150 people, Ridecell is moving to the next phase of company growth and customer outreach. We are ready for a champion to manage our key ecosystem partners that will transform Ridecell into the leading ecosystem of shared mobility partners. Shared mobility is not an industry that will depend on a single vendor offering. It requires deep cooperation with companies developing different parts of the shared mobility service offering stack. The ability to manage these deep partnerships that drive joint revenue and jointly developed products is a key ingredient for success. </p>
<p>We’re looking for a Director of Ecosystem Alliances and Programs to manage core business relationships with signed partners that will drive tens of millions of dollars in joint revenue and cooperatively developed product offerings. The successful candidate will understand inherently how to manage a diverse cross-functional business relationship with strategic partners to develop joint customer wins, orchestrate outstanding cross company communication, and co-develop joint product offerings. We’d like someone to deeply engage with one of our top new partnerships and expand over time to managing several key strategic programs. This role is for the person who excels as program management and is considered top farmer rather than a hunter. Does that sound like you?</p>

Director, Ecosystem Alliances & Programs

At Ridecell View All Jobs
San Francisco, CA

Ridecell (www.ridecell.com) is powering next generation of ridesharing, carsharing and autonomous new mobility services. As the world shifts to a mobility on-demand model and new companies rush to enter as service providers, Ridecell is ready to support these initiatives. Already 20 customers, including BMW, Renault, Karma and AAA use our proven platform to launch, operate, and scale their new mobility services. 

With a team of over 150 people, Ridecell is moving to the next phase of company growth and customer outreach. We are ready for a champion to manage our key ecosystem partners that will transform Ridecell into the leading ecosystem of shared mobility partners.

We’d like someone to deeply engage with one of our top new partnerships and expand over time to managing several key strategic programs. This role is for the person who excels as program management and is considered top farmer rather than a hunter. Does that sound like you?
