Turo – Why Work For Us?


WHERE LOCAL CAR OWNERS GIVE TRAVELERS THE PERFECT VEHICLE FOR THEIR NEXT ADVENTURE

Founded in 2009 and headquartered in San Francisco, Turo is a car sharing marketplace where travelers can rent any car they want, wherever they want it, from a vibrant community of local car owners. Travelers choose from a totally unique selection of nearby cars, while car owners earn extra money and help fuel their adventures.

A pioneer of the sharing economy and travel industry, Turo is a safe, supportive community where the car you rent is part of a story, not a fleet. Whether it’s an F-150 truck to help out on moving day, a Tesla for a luxurious weekend away, or a classic VW bus for a picture-perfect road trip, travelers rent the car and own the adventure.

Turo is a car rental marketplace where travelers can rent any car they want, wherever they want it, from a nationwide community of local car owners. Our mission is to reinvent the car rental experience and put the world’s one billion cars to better use. We’ve grown the business by over 10x in the past two years and raised over $100 million from investors including Kleiner Perkins and Google Ventures.

WE'RE A GREAT BUNCH

Our people are our #1 asset, and each team member uniquely invigorates our diverse, international, travel- and car-loving cast of characters.

WE'RE IN IT TO WIN IT

We tackle thorny problems every day. We tinker, we experiment, we measure, analyze, and optimize, and we work tirelessly to realize our mission and vision.

WE'RE DOING COOL STUFF

From dynamic web and mobile apps to customer experiences that refresh confidence in humankind, we’re crafting a brand that brings adventure to the logistics of travel.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Turo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incredible transparency of data and decision-making across the company. The CEO Andre is super approachable and lays out a clear vision for the future of Turo. Team is very supportive and humble, probably one of the lowest-ego work environments I've experienced in Silicon Valley. Cool business opportunity with lots of room for growth and ownership of big portions of the business.

    Cons

    Sometimes it feels like the size of our business outpaces the size of our team, especially on the data & engineering teams. But on the plus side that means there are always new opportunities for those looking to build new skills.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and help the team scale faster to support the rapidly growing business and opportunity.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Turo (San Francisco, CA) in July 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process at Turo was exceptional. Every question they asked was directly related to the role I was applying for and in many cases the questions being asked I actually got to work on immediately after being hired. Above all they did not try to trip me up with time consuming complex situational problems as some companies do to see how well you can work through it. Everything asked was fair and solvable with an appropriate complexity level.
