    Our Story

    In 2014 we started Swoop with a vision to transform the local roadside assistance and towing industry. Nearly everyone has had a nightmare experience with a flat tire or breakdown, and we were no different. While other businesses like Uber were transforming local transportation, local towing was lagging behind. We asked the question if I can know exactly where my Uber driver is as they approach, why can't I know where my tow truck is when my car breaks down? We set out to solve this problem by building SaaS for local towing companies, and we recently joined forces with Agero, the market leader in Roadside Assistance to bring our service to 115M American drivers.

    What We Do

    Our software is automating an entire industry that has not changed in decades. We’re taking antiquated manual systems and redefining them into digital platforms, open APIs, and exceptional customer experiences.

    Swoop software powers thousands of local towing companies, solving their everyday business challenges, such as dispatching, reporting, invoicing, and CRM. We also partner with car makers, insurers, and fleet operators to deliver a roadside product that is fast, transparent, and easy.

    Who We Are

    We are a rapidly growing SF based team of 45 people passionate about re-inventing the roadside industry, a real world problem for tens of millions of drivers annually.. We were previously backed by Founder Collective, Slow Ventures, SV Angel, and Entree Capital, and now we're backed by a large, profitable, and stable business that has committed to our growth and technology.

    How We Interview & Hire

    Our interview process starts with a quick intro phone call where we tell you more about our market opportunity, the industry, and the solutions we're building. We believe it critical that our candidates enjoy the market vertical we are pursuing.
    We also seek to understand more about your career goals, interests, and motivations, to determine if Swoop is an environment that will foster career growth and development.

    From there, we will conduct a technical screen with one of our Engineers so you can show us your skills. Lastly, you will be invited onsite to interview with an interview panel from our product/engineering group. Our onsite interview is designed to assess for a broad range of skills so that we can gain a holistic understanding of what you bring to the team and where you shine. For our Engineering candidates, our onsite interview includes 2-3 technical rounds, as well as "real-talk" conversations around what it is like to be an Engineer at Swoop and how you would work with the team on a daily basis. We pride ourselves on being transparent throughout the entire interview process with conversations around compensation, performance bonuses, and the impact you will make here at Swoop.
