Durham – Lojika – Student Ambassador

I graduated from the Fuqua School of Business in 2010, upon graduation worked in New York in Investment Banking afterwards and relocated back to Istanbul. I am now working as a CFO for Lojika Field Labs.
Lojika is a tech start-up founded by ex-Merill Lynch and Deutsche Bank guys. We have developed a unique algorithm that focuses on mobility and ridesharing. The main purpose of the platform is to improve carpooling in a fun and efficient way, and fill up the empty seats in private cars. The drivers use it for cost reimbursement, not for remuneration like Uber.
We have received the highest European high-tech grant in Turkey from the European Commission and our private investors include CEOs of Deutsche Bank Turkey, Credit Suisse Turkey, and BNP Paribas Turkey.
We have tested and proved our product in big metropols such as Istanbul, Madrid, and Tel Aviv over 20,000 test rides and now we want to expand into the US market. As a Duke Alum, I considered Durham to be a good place because of lack of good public transport options and Duke University being the main journey point in most trips.
We need to recruit a student ambassador that have a passion for start-ups to work on our behalf to test our product. We will be paying USD 10-13 per hour depending on the candidate. We could also pay a success fee if the ambassador manages to generate a certain number of trips. At this stage, we do not expect to generate income from the trips.
