President

"Our passionate membership base of Zipsters is what motivates us each and every day. We are working to create a more innovative, more sustainable, more convenient way to get around cities and campuses and that innovation starts in our offices across the country and around the world. Some of the best and brightest minds spend their days figuring out the newest technology, use cases, type of cars and service offerings to make sure our members always have the freedom that comes from ‘wheels when they want them. One of our main objectives is to develop talent, promote from within the company and most importantly care for the employees and communities in which we work by using our resources as a global company to focus on the local needs of our Zipsters. For 15 years we have worked towards a world where car sharing members outnumber car owners and we are closer than ever in large part because of our people, who work every day to make that vision a reality."

​​Flexible Spending

We all need to stretch our dollars and budget appropriately. Luckily our flexible spending options for health care, dependent care and transportation costs help you do just that.

Zipcar offers 529 and 401(k) savings plans, so you can easily set money aside straight from your paycheck and watch it grow in time for kids’ college tuition and your own retirement.



Casual & Fun Work Environment

We work hard (really, really hard). But we also regularly reward ourselves with Zip o’clock happy hours, Guitar Hero jams, and holiday revelry, along with your basic, everyday office hijinks. (We seem to come up with an excuse to buy cupcakes every week). We also get the satisfaction of learning from each other, laughing a lot, and competing ladle-to-ladle in the annual Chili Cook-off.
