Why should you join Rapido?

As an engineer at Rapido we always believe in making an impact on the livelihood of our captains. Let’s hear about a few of them:
“Mr. Rathod is a part-time captain with Rapido. His daughter participated in boxing nationals last time. She was paired against a world champion; she couldn’t get a medal. Earnings from Rapido help Mr. Rathod support his daughter’s dream to play for India; he has put her for private boxing training in Haryana.”

“We have a part-time college student as a captain in Chennai. Her mother gifted her a scooty. She was touched by her mother’s gesture and decided to use the gift fruitfully. She joined Rapido as captain. It enables her to pay her college fee and support her mom. It also makes her feel liberated and gives her confidence to face her life. She sees Rapido as her ticket to financial and emotional freedom”
And that’s the impact our Engineering team has made on the lives of some of our captains.
