We’re electric scooter obsessed and we want you to appreciate the benefits of these fantastic items in the world of commuting, while we learn from your experience.
To do so we want to test some of our theories and gain some valuable insight into the pros and cons of electric scooters for commuting in Dublin. We know electric scooters for adults can change the commuter experience, but we want a hyper local understanding of this.
e-Scooter Commute Reviewers”
We’re currently hiring a team of five people to become “e-Scooter Commute Reviewers” – they’ll get paid to commute to their workplace each day and given the use of a e-scooter for the duration of the work. And no, it’s not a joke!
The team of “e-Scooter Commute Reviewers” will be prepared to start work as soon as Irish legislation around electric scooters changes – (relatively soon by all accounts). They’ll need to be prepared to commit to 5 x Monday to Friday return commutes within 8 miles of Dublin City Centre for at least 4 weeks. Applicants will need to log their experience of the commute. All applicants must also have strong English writing skills in order to accurately carry out the reviews of their naps and follow any relevant instructions.
Applicants living within the commutable area are welcome but must be over age 18. Applications close on July 31st 2021.
Over the course of 4, our dedicated commuters will be required to take part in a variety of experiments testing out theories including the pace of e-scooters vs Dublin public transport, e-scooters vs car transport and also comparisons around enjoyability, stress and the effects of commuting on motivation at work, fatigue and productivity. The individuals will be required to take part in a video call before and after each experiment, to ensure they understand their tasks fully, and to complete a verbal questionnaire detailing their experiences and results. In return for their participation, each ‘Commute Reviewer’ will receive a payment of €1000 at the end of the testing period.

Cormac Reynolds of Green Electric Scooters said,
“We’re seeing a big increase in the numbers of people looking for a faster, easier and frankly better way to commute. Electric scooters are a greener, often faster and in the medium term – cheaper way to commute. Dublin is a great city but there are definite issues with commuting via public transport and car.
“For us, understanding the experience on an electric scooter from a range of perspectives is invaluable and will provide us with the sort of data to make the product we offer better and also allows us to certify some of the theories we have around this means of travel for commuters. If you think you’re up to the job, or know somebody who is, please do share and apply!”
