Social Media Moderator

About SWVL

SWVL is a fast-growing technology company which is disrupting the public transportation market in

Kenya and is continuously making people’s lives better. We started with an observation of the over

dependence on personal cars and the consequent pains of moving around the city. Rush hours, traffic,

terrible driving habits and unavailability of parking spots came to mind in addition to the pain of high

cost of on-demand services.

Our goal is to transform the transportation scene in Kenya, through providing a technology-based

alternative to public transportation; a smart solution that solves the transportation equation, leading

to helping more people commute for less, with ease and comfort.

SWVL is a revolutionary idea born out of passion and a strong desire to change people’s lives. We strive

to provide more than just a means to facilitate commuting and have a hunger to provide out of the box

solutions, encourage the contribution of youth in innovation, and inspire change. We currently have

operations in seven(7) countries, Kenya, Egypt, Pakistan, Dubai, Jordan, Singapore and Saudi Arabia
