    Sort of fast and marginally furious: One man's quest to live out his automotive fantasies - The Boston Globe

    When you live life like I do - full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal, one hand on the steering wheel, the other flippin' the bird - you need a car that can keep up. And lately, my old Hyundai just hasn't been cutting it. First, it was the headlights that couldn't seem to stay lit.

Getaround – Why Work For Us?


We imagine a world where all cars are shared.

Working at Getaround means tackling one of today's biggest problems: car overpopulation. There are 1 billion cars in the world, and the average car sits parked for over 22 hours a day. Our mission is to put those 22 billion hours to good use.

We need your help. 

We're just getting started. From Marketing and Sales to Engineering and Product, we're driving the future of mobility forward, one car at a time. 

We're looking for smart, passionate, and energetic self-starters to join our growing team. We believe the future of transportation starts with you.

Check out the Getaround jobs page, and start building the future today. 


Good office vibes

An environment suitable for solving global challenges is very important to us. Gone are the stuffy cubicles and isolating offices; here you'll find an open, collaborative and pet-friendly space to do your best work.

Plenty of vacation

While we're passionate about what we do, we work to live, not live to work. Vacations are for experiencing and enjoying the world we hope to shape. Work hard, play hard, and be happy - that's how we roll.

Flex office hours

Looking for more work-life balance or simply want to skip the rush-hour commute? Our flexible approach to work allows us to manage our time more effectively. Who said inspiration only strikes between 9 and 5?

Health and wellness

Our generous health, dental and vision benefits keep our teams healthy, happy and harmonious - but it's our wide range of wellness programs that really help to keep us all in shape and out of the doctor's office.

Getaround credit

You've got to practice what you preach, right? We think so, and shower our team in Getaround credits to help them... well, get around. Why have one company car, when you can access a fleet of hundreds?

Good times

The team that plays well together, works brilliantly together. So we let the good times roll at Getaround. From happy hours to team trips, our journey is full of fun stories, new friends, and (of course) foosball.

Ready to drive the future of mobility forward? Join our team.

Take initiative. Get stuff done.

We're a community of builders, doers, and dreamers. We're focused on building great customer experiences that scale. At Getaround, we challenge you to think bigger, be more strategic, and, most importantly, get stuff done. Our engineers ship code daily, build new features, and develop advanced frameworks.

Foster collaboration. Work efficiently.

We're a team-first company. That means working closely with your fellow engineers, whether it's pair programming or reviewing each other's pull requests. Our engineers communicate across and within teams to share knowledge and because, let's be honest, we really like talking to each other.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Getaround (San Francisco, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Overall a great experience. Recruiter contacted me first, then I had a phone screen with a senior engineer, followed by an onsite interview.

    The process on-site was a bit disorganized, however everyone I spoke to was very nice. Two of the interviews involved coding, 1 more of a system design and another two resume/past experiences. The questions they asked were not hard and had to do with the problems they are facing. So make sure you think of that while preparing.
