According to a company LinkedIn post, Uber's Middle East unit Careem is looking to hire more than 200 workers as it extends the rollout of its "Super App," which offers services outside of its core ride-hailing business.

"From engineers to data analysts, operations managers to platform designers, and everything in between," Careem said in a statement.

Uber Technologies purchased the company for $3.1 billion in 2019, giving the American firm market domination in the Middle East and Pakistan.Beginner's Guide to Uber

In a statement, Ruth Fletcher, Careem's senior vice president of People, said the market opportunity for a "Super App" that provides services like food delivery, digital payments, and courier services in Careem's region is worth trillions.

She added that the company, which now has a foothold in North Africa, is expanding its presence in areas such as ride-hailing, food and grocery delivery, payments, and micro-mobility, which refers to a variety of small, lightweight vehicles.

"We're seeking talented and ambitious people as we grow these services to more markets," the announcement read.

Uber raised $8.1 billion in its initial public offering in 2019, after acquiring Careem, valuing the company at $82.4 billion.

In December, a major Newswire reported that Uber was in talks with Careem's management to bring in outside investors, citing four persons familiar with the situation.
