    About Us

    2011 TechCrunch Disrupt NYC winner.
    Named "Top startup to watch" by the Wall Street Journal.

    Getaround provides a simple and effective way for car owners make money by sharing their vehicle with a community of trusted drivers; all of whom can locate, rent and unlock each car directly from their phone. Powered by proprietary technology and a passion for change, our unique service offers no key exchange, no paperwork and we cover the insurance for each and every rental booked through us.

    With the average car remaining parked approximately 92% of the time, and the world’s roads becoming more and more congested, we believe the future of driving is community-driven and are leading the charge to improve how we all get around.

    Comprised of hackers, creatives, innovators and problem solvers, Getaround is always on the lookout for the next wave of new talent to take our vision to the next level. Joining us will place you in whirlwind of innovative ideas and global solutions, so we only hire the most passionate, fun and capable candidates.

    If you’ve got the talent and desire to change how the world works - we’re waiting to hear from you.

    Getaround is privately owned and has the investment support of such industry heavyweights as Eric Schmidt (Google), Marissa Mayer (Yahoo!), Shervin Pishevar (Menlo Ventures), Ashton Kutcher (A-Grade Investments) and others.
