Roshni Rides has 5 “core values” as a company. The 5 values are service, commitment, fearlessness, integrity and agility. This past November, our Operations Manager Ghayas won the Employee Value Award for his commitment to the company! This is a fitting award for Ghayas as he was the first employee at Roshni Rides. Let’s learn more about him:

Hi Ghayas! Tell us about yourself.

Hi, my name is Ghayasuddin Kaifi and I am the Operations Manager at Roshni Rides. I have been working at the company for over a year now and am happy to say I was the first employee!

Why/How did you get into your profession? 

I received a Hotel Management degree and was working at the Sheraton Hotel (now Movenpick) in Karachi.  Unfortunately there was an explosion at the hotel, so the management switched me into the transportation department. I decided to stay in that department and continue in the field of transportation because I enjoyed it. I then moved into a role at Careem Pakistan.

What are your interests/hobbies? 

I am interested in learning new things. I love to interact and meet new people and enjoy getting to know about people’s life. I also enjoy long drives!

What led you to working with Roshni Rides? 

I read about the Roshni Rides team on the internet and how they won the Hult Prize. This led me to want to work with their team.

What is the most difficult part of your job? 

I can manage a lot of work and do well in high pressure situations which is a good quality to have in operations. But I like to focus on my work quietly without any interruptions.

What is your favorite meal? 

Mutton Karrahi is my favorite food.
