Member Champion (Customer Service Team)

Starting at 20-25 hours/week, contractor position

Poparide is a socially-minded Canadian company designed to fill a need: affordable city-to-city travel for everyone. We noticed the possibility for a mutually beneficial connection: many people have limited transportation options to travel between cities and others have vehicles that are expensive to run and maintain (around $9,000 a year per vehicle in Canada). These vehicles are driven with empty seats.

Our mission at Poparide is to fill empty seats in cars and help people travel together. We do this by connecting drivers with people heading the same way. By sharing trips, we create a new type of travel that is more social, affordable and sustainable. Our vision is to live in a world where we share resources to better preserve our planet.  

At Poparide, we consider our community and our members’ experience to be essential to our success. Our membership is growing quickly across Canada and our priority is to create the safest and most seamless experience for our passengers and drivers. 

Our Support Team exists to help ensure successful trips for our members from both a human and technical standpoint.
