    We are the leading carsharing platform for ridesharing drivers. We connect private car owners with drivers who need a car to use for ridesharing companies such as Uber, Lyft, Postmates, etc. The position is based in our Downtown LA office which is a super collaborative work environment overflowing with perks ranging from beer on tap and snacks. Train access is a block away. There are food carts and weekly farmers market next doors.

    We (Andy and Abhi) were looking to sign up for Uber/Lyft 2 years ago, but neither of our cars qualified. After digging around we found a grey market where drivers were renting cars without proper insurance etc and getting very bad deals on the rentals. We thought of creating an open platform where anyone can share their car with ridesharing drivers.

    The launch was harder that we expected as there was no insurance to cover such a business case. We had to create an affordable insurance product from scratch.

    That was 2 years ago. Now we are a brand name in our niche area and have great relationships with Uber/Lyft and other ridesharing companies. We have helped thousands of drivers join the ridesharing revolution.

    Now the time has to come to scale the company to even higher levels. This is where we need great engineering talent like you.
