LimeBike is expanding in 58 cities after massive Uber partnership

LimeBike ($LIMEBIKE), a company that makes ride-share electric scooters and electric-assist bikes, just received a massive $335 million investment from car-sharing service Uber ($UBER). Alphabet's GV investment arm values Lime at an impressive $1.1 billion.

The Uber deal is sure to accelerate Lime's growth, as it will add Lime scooter and bike locations to the Uber app. Of course, Uber's logo will appear on Lime's scooters as well.

As of today, Lime has 141 openings. That's down — just slightly — from last week, but given the new investment, we fully expect to see growth in hiring at the startup now that it has a large cash influx to reinvest in talent and expansion.

When looking at the locations in which Lime is hiring, it becomes clear how rapidly the company expects to expand in cities across the world. Here's a breakdown of the top places Lime is hiring:
