What do you do at hiyacar?
I’m Eleonore, the Head of Product at hiyacar.
Who do you work with? How do you deliver hiyacar’s vision?
I work with every team but mostly with the tech team. I help deliver hiyacar’s vision by gathering insights and feedback from our members & partners, our member support & growth team and our developers. I’m responsible for prioritising what the tech team works on next, and I’m also responsible to measure the impact of new features.
What are your credentials/past experience, for working in your position?
I used to work at Koolicar, a now defunct peer-to-peer French & Canadian car sharing startup as a product manager. Their tech team was located in Montreal, Canada, where I used to work, and the service was only available in France. I am therefore very familiar to compete with Drivy when it gets to offering the best solutions!
What do you like about working at hiyacar?
I love that we are so member focused, and that I get to be able to meet the people that use our product and make our service the best in the UK. Peer to peer networks are all about people, and when I used to work for Koolicar, it was hard to be so far away from our members!
What’s your background?
I was born in France but moved with my family to Montreal when I was 10 years old. In January 2019, I moved to London so that I could keep working in an industry that I love. I now live in Lower Clapton, and I really think not enough people are sharing their car over there!
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
Bouldering, cycling, playing the trumpet and the ukulele. I’m part of a beginners brass band in Finsbury Park as 2nd cornet!
What’s one thing that not many people know about you?
I’m super slow at reading the time on a clock
