Tiny Mile is recruiting a Manager within the Operations team in its Toronto offices. The mission of the Ops team is simple: to make Tiny Mile the preferred delivery method for merchants and customers. The role of Ops Manager is a key position for Tiny Mile and will allow you to combine many skills: project management, creation and automation of processes, advanced data analysis, content writing, and daily interactions with merchants, pilots and customers in the field.
Why it Matters
Last-mile is the highest polluting segment. Given the continuous rise of e-commerce, it is expected the total carbon emissions will increase 30% by 2030 because of the last-mile. Our robots not only have zero emissions but use as little electricity as a light bulb.
People spend on average 10 hours running errands, going grocery, etc each week. If delivery was reliable, instantaneous and cost cents it would free people from carrying these tasks. If there are 2.93 million people in Toronto, we would be giving back 29.3 million hours to people to spend with their families and what they care about.
Imagine a small bookstore delivering their books for cents to the entire city in half an hour or less. Transportation has always been the backbone of the economy and delivery robots will ease trade and foster unprecedented economic growth.
During this pandemic, we are helping keep small businesses in business while also keeping their customers safe.
